    I think I read somewhere that all their little bodies create so much heat when they do this, the hornet cooks to death.

    From reddit

    This is mostly just a cool shot of the Harpy’s nictitating membrane in action, a feature that many birds of prey will often use to assist with feeding and navigation. It’s essentially a 3rd translucent eyelid that provides temporary ‘armor’ to allow the bird to get done what it needs to (also acts as a moistening agent), e.g. if a smaller bird is actively mobbing it while it’s trying to feast.

    Some cool uses for that membrane that I’ve been reading about lately:

    -peregrines rely on using the membrane when stooping at 200+ mph to retain vision/moisture

    -the water ouzel dives into lakes and WALKS ON THE BOTTOM scavenging for insects/crustaceans that other birds can’t reach, while using its nictitating membrane to see underwater

    -vultures use them habitually when digging their heads deep into a carcass. I tend to wonder if they activate when the vulture vomits in self defense, as the image is kinda badass
