Formation Puffins

This is a montage. Puffins are not graceful fliers but they do fly fast, with rapid wing beats. I shot this puffin, returning with a beak-full of sand eels, using continuous shooting mode. I then merged two images on the same canvas using Photoshop CS2. This gives a good impression of the flying action.
