    Anyone can catch catch lights. I love the blink! I seem to only be able to catch them on people and dogs and it is not cool on them. This is an incredible shot.

    That is interesting to catch the birds between a blink and to show what they look like with their eyes closed....Looks like it is praying...sweet capture.
