Atlantic Puffins of Machias Seal Island

 

I had the fabulous opportunity to visit Maine and sail 10 miles out in the Atlantic Ocean to Machias Seal Island to see the Atlantic Puffins and other seabirds. On a fair-weather day, the boat captain was able to make the tricky landing, allowing me to get onto the island to take a series of images of these amazing seabirds.

The Atlantic Puffins spend most of their lives dispersed over the North Atlantic Ocean, returning to this island only to breed and raise their young. As soon as the young are ready, they all return to sea again.
