Atlantic puffins love Skellig Michael!

Earlier this month, for the first time ever, I had a pleasure to see many of the beautiful Atlantic puffins flying over the North Atlantic Ocean, close to their famous Irish home – Skellig Michael. I haven't taken any photos of them as it was unbearably cold and wet on the boat, with the water pouring all over me, so I was focusing rather on having myself (and my camera) well wrapped! ;) Next time I'll be coming with a wet suit on me! ;)

Instead of a perfect nature photo, here's a drawing I'm enjoying working on – I hope you like this puffin art!

Hedgehog – A4 fine art prints are now available in my store

This tiny little creature, although looks scary to many, is truly a wonder of nature.

The spines on its back are safe to touch and not poisonous, unlike its distant cousin’s porcupine.

It can roll into a ball of spikes when threatened, other than that it's a pretty calm creature.

Hedgehogs are usually brown, with pale tips to the spines, but you can find blonde hedgehogs on the UK island of Alderney.
