    Such a great expression... demure refinement, or something like that. Thanks for sharing.

    Great looking bird. In the first picture it looks like you cut her closing her third eyelid. Birds have three eyelids – one upper, one lower and a nictitating membrane. The third is between the two other eyelids and the cornea and moves sideways. It is used in cleaning and protecting the eye. A good trio.

    Hello, Louise. Yes, you're right. She was in the middle of a blink! And thanks for the eyelids explanation. I confess I did not know that. Cheers!
