Photos: Watch Caspian Tern Plummet Into Water In Pursuit of Minnow

Here’s a pretty cool series of a Caspian Tern plummeting into Lake Ontario in pursuit of tiny fish. He then drops it, or…does he expertly flip the minnow so the scales don’t shred his esophagus? The images might not be crisp and clear, but the moment shines as a thrilling favorite on this field trip.
