Tern vs. Fish

The fish won this battle as the Tern miscalculated just a tad as his eyes were apparently bigger than his stomach, or throat.  He kept trying to swallow the fish to no avail.  He finally gave up but it made a cool photo-op.

    • Thanks Doug. It was a great opportunity as there were lots of fish ripe for the picking as the pond was drying up.

  2. What a great shot. There’s something unique about those two eyes so close together.

    • Thanks Lyle. Got several shots of him trying to swallow the fish and I liked this one for the eye contact.
