Cutler Maine is located in northern Maine on the coast.
This photo was taken during a photo expedition from Cutler, Maine to Machias Seal Island. Machias Seal Island is a small (15 acres), low-lying rocky offshore island situated nine miles from Cutler, Maine, the closest point of departure on the mainland. The island is designated a bird sanctuary by the U.S. and Canadian Wildlife Service. The puffins are completely wild and free to come and go as they please. We were restricted on the island as to where we could go but were each given an allotted amount of time in the blinds to photograph these majestic birds.
