Easy meal but deadly

![Easy meal but deadly]

At the inlet shooting ospreys and these fast and small Caspian terns (I believe). Did not know I had even caught this shot until home and started looking at them. This normally ended well for the tern but the potential for disaster is always there.

I’ve seen them snatch a fish on the line like that and get away with it, more than once. Though, like you’ve pointed out, a slight misjudgment will certainly result in a snagged tern. Good capture, though.
