Check those feet out! Thank you for sharing :)

Beautiful! Thanks! This is a male. Males have more yellow in their iris, which makes the pupil appear smaller.

It is so interesting to see how creatures have evolved over time with unique features!

Just does'nt look real ... the feet and the wings look as if they belonged to other birds. Great photo!
