In rhesus macaques the fear grin signals ritualized submission or fear toward dominant individuals. Additionally, this meaning should not be generalized to macaques, because in Tonkean macaques (Macaca tonkeana) this facial expression signals affiliation.
Woody the wood pigeon was tucking in to a piece of bread just outside our kitchen door. As he shook his head to break off a piece, the remainder flew up in the air and landed on his back. He then trotted around frantically trying to shake it off his back. It was one of those moments when I wished I'd had a camcorder to hand, to make £250 from 'You've been framed'.
