Headless fish flying

 

Unexpectedly, many of the fish flying around our skies are headless.

That fish fly is courtesy of the good graces of ospreys. Yet, it is striking that many of these flying fish lack a head. After catching a fish, an osprey often will stop somewhere and devour the head (brains are tasty) before carrying the rest of it back to the nest.

    A sucker indeed! I never saw a flying fish
    I never hope to see one
    But i can tell you anyhow
    I’d rather see than be one
