A bit of a Throwback Thursday picture for you. Taken this past February in Fort Collins, Colorado. I had an amazing three days taking pictures of a number of eagles that were having a feast in a local pond.
One thing interesting about this picture is that it captures the eagles’ inner eyelid closed. This eyelid is called a nictitating membrane and moves from front to back, wiping dirt from the eye every few seconds. The eagle can actually see through this membrane. Pretty neat stuff.
