Photographer: Megan Lorenz
Location and date: Elliston, Newfoundland, July 6, 2018.
Description: After a long day of waiting until puffins would land onshore, I finally got lucky and this one landed close to me. He walked around collecting material for his burrow, and when he strutted in front of me with this wild iris it made my day!
Gear: Canon EOS-1D X Mark II.
