Change pendant light bulb? Answered

I have three teardrop pendant lights over my counter; one light bulb burnt out. I tried to change the bulb but it does not screw in - not sure what type of bulb this is? Really, I've changed light bulbs forever, but can't figure this one out. Search You Tube and DIY for a video but only found typical light bulbs or recessed lights. Your help is much appreciated.

Photo of the fixture, with closeup on the bulb socket, might help.

Thanks everyone. Asked a friend to look at it. The light bulb is actually inside a tiny globe - this tiny globe pulls straight out - the light bulb itself is a plug in type bulb (2 long prongs).

have you tried giving them a gentle push inward and then twist (again gently)? They *might use a bayonet fixture.

Did you try pulling it straight out? It might not be a screw in but instead a plug in type.
