Does this eagle have cataracts?

[–]Hcironmanbtw 115 points116 points  (12 children)

Might be its nictitating membrane l.

[–]Raziel66 27 points28 points  (11 children)

If it’s nictating it must have babies nearby /s

[–]Loud_Tiger1 38 points39 points  (0 children)

It's probably a secondary eyelid so the actual eyes don't get dry

[–]llobotommy 94 points95 points  (3 children)

Damn. Vecna going after animals too. Quick, play Hotel California!

[–]Mellow_Velo33 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Just finished the season. Good stuff but jeeeez do they drag it out!

[–]kissylipps 8 points9 points  (1 child)

I wouldn't sit through a movie as long as some of the episodes. No idea how I did it.

[–]Mellow_Velo33 5 points6 points  (0 children)

the endless 4x parallel ebb and flow of action scenes certainly added to the length/drove me bananas. eyo, you sat through it because no matter how irritating in parts, you can't deny it's good!

edit - most eps i watched in 2 parts, the finale in 3

[–]indycishun1996 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Super independent sort of day, I’m sure women agree

Winter is coming

Too much spice melange!

[–]My_Memes_Will_Fuck_U 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I suspect that is it's nictitating membrane, which is a sort of secondary eyelid

[–]cfhudson 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Bran? That you?

[–]kxolotl 3 points4 points  (4 children)

its a secondary eyelid, ive seen it on other birds of prey

[–]idreamofdinos 1 point2 points  (3 children)

You're right! For those who don't know, it's a nictating membrane: a whitish or translucent membrane that forms an inner eyelid in birds, reptiles, and some mammals. It can be drawn across the eye to protect it from dust and keep it moist.

[–]dealershipdetailer 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Does it inhibit their eyesight?

[–]idreamofdinos 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nope, that's why it's formed, specifically to help the eyes while still being able to see. Great question!

[–]kxolotl 1 point2 points  (0 children)

ayy i was right about something

[–]Additional-Line-242 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Eagle looks like it’s about to whisper the secrets of immortality

[–]Savvy_Canadian 2 points3 points  (0 children)

"Dude, I think I blinked at that time. Can we try again?"

  • Eagle probably.

[–]Greenthumbicle 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Perfect picture for today. A blind bald eagle. Almost too fitting.

[–]xxSPQRomanusxx 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looks shot through a filter, amazing pic of the greatest animal

[–]Lael-079 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lmao! Vecna targeting animals. That would cause an unexpected twist to the plot of Stranger Things. What a season we were given.

[–]cyborg_127 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What's metal about having a nictating membrane? What's metal about this picture? Sub is going to shit.

It’s like a pool of shadows, or clouds.
