The boneta hunt the flying-fish in a fairer way, and they do look so pretty when they jump out of the water!
Look, now, at that lot there that have just risen to escape the boneta.
"The boneta seems to be their inveterate enemy, or rather consumer, as he appears to be in good condition on the diet.
The bird hunts them as soon as they rise in the air, and the boneta when they're in the water; so, between the two, they have little chance of escape -- just like the fight, the other day, between the black-fish on the one side and the thresher and sword-fish on the other. "
How disappointed the boneta must then feel when they see them take unto themselves wings and fly away? "
