Penguins of the North

Puffins are excellent swimmers and are nicknamed the “penguins of the north,” which is a bit misleading because they can also fly at over 80 km per hour, sometimes travelling up to 100 km off shore in search of food for their chicks. For some reason, the grass turned out purple, but that’s a quirk of the camera because it was really green.
