AIR MEAL

Swooping in for a landing, an Atlantic puffin brings a meal for its chick on Scotland’s Treshnish Isles. Puffin parents make up to eight food runs a day; each bird can grip 20 or more fish in its beak.

The photo is part of the feature article, Puffin Therapy which can be found in the June issue of National Geographic Magazine (cover below), written by Tom O’Neill with photography by Danny Green.
