Turkey That is Not for You
That isn't suppose to be for you. Are they not the ugliest birds you have ever laid eyes on? At least I think so; but, they are big, beefy and run pretty funny.
What I love about this pic is that it captured the nictitating membrane over his eye. From Wiki: The membrane is a transparent or translucent third eyelid present in some animals that can be drawn across the eye for protection and to moisten it while maintaining vision. The term comes from the Latin word nictare, meaning "to blink". It is often called a third eyelid or haw, and may be referred to in scientific terminology as the plica semilunaris, membrana nictitans, or palpebra tertia. Unlike the upper and lower eyelids, the nictitating membrane moves horizontally across the eyeball.
Got all that? I captured the third eye :)
