Shrimp To Go
Last week I was watching a few Least Terns fishing in the salt marsh when this one suddenly zipped by me. I thought it might have been carrying something but wasn’t sure, and these small birds fly so fast just getting any flight shot is a challenge. Plus if one was to pluck a tiny fish out of the water, normally they snap it down immediately so it would be unusual for one to be flying around with something. It wasn’t until I looked at the photo later that I realized this tern had a shrimp. Maybe the bird was flying over to present the shrimp to a prospective mate to impress her with his hunting skills!
