May.BBC Wildlife No. 06 Vol. 42

THE COVER Photographer Edwin Towler took this shot of an Atlantic puffin while helping out on the Puffin Rally, Iceland’s annual count. “I particularly enjoy the contrast between its casual demeanour and its dramatic, banking turn – a manoeuvre that, for a puffin, likely ended in a clumsy landing.” Edwin used a Canon R5, 70-200mm, 1/2500th sec at f4, ISO1600.
