Looks like a catfish. I would think those fins could hurt going down. Wonderful action, Karl, with the water droplets and rings in the water.

I always admire these birds, how they swallow all sorts of weird fish whole!
Great shot Karl

nicely done on getting the fish head looking towards the lens and the tern as-well, perfect KARL.

The view of the fish's head makes this shot stand out, very well done Karl.

Superb behavior and action. Pleasing point of view and environment. I love the placement of the fish in the mouth. I suppose you could move the catchlight so it looks like they are staring each other down. (Just kidding)
