Puffins “fly” underwater at the Monterey Bay Aquarium

Puffins on Parade at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. From Wikipedia:

Puffins are any of three small species of alcids (auks) in the bird genus Fratercula… Their short wings are adapted for swimming with a flying technique under water. In the air, they beat their wings rapidly (up to 400 times per minute) in swift flight, often flying low over the ocean’s surface.
