Horned puffins forage by diving underwater and swimming through schools of small fish. When it catches a fish, the puffin flies out of the water and takes the fresh meal to the nest for the young chicks to enjoy.
Horned puffins are common in Alaska, but they’re vulnerable to oil spills and introduced predators like foxes. Lake Clark National Park has one of the biggest populations. Join a trip led by veteran photographer Matt Shetzer and learn to photograph puffins and other iconic Alaskan wildlife.
