En Passant

En passant 

(from Frenchin passing) is a move in the board game of chess.[1] It is a special pawn capture which can occur immediately after a player makes a double-step move from its starting position, and an enemy pawn could have captured it had the pawn moved only one square forward. The opponent captures the just-moved pawn as if taking it "as it passes" through the first square. The resulting position is the same as if the pawn had moved only one square forward and the enemy pawn had captured normally.

The en passant capture must be done on the very next turn, or the right to do so is lost.[2] It is the only occasion in chess in which a piece captures but does not replace the captured piece on its square.

The tarsi

(tarsal plates) are two comparatively thick, elongated plates of dense connective tissue, about 2.5 cm. in length; one is found in each eyelid, and contributes to its form and support. They directly abut the lid margins.[1] The tarsus has a lower and upper part making up the palpebrae.

 

tarsus

In tetrapods, the tarsus is a cluster of seven articulating bones in each foot situated between the lower end of tibia and fibulaof the lower leg and the metatarsus. The tarsus articulates with the bones of the metatarsus, which in turn articulate with theproximal phalanges of the toes. The joint between the tibia and fibula above and the tarsus below is referred to as the ankle joint.
