Unusual animal eye macrophotography

Необычные макрофотографии глаз животных

The eye (lat. Oculus) is a sensory organ (organ of the visual system) of animals that has the ability to perceive electromagnetic radiation in the light wavelength range and provides the function of vision. A person through the eye receives about 90% of the information from the outside world. The eye of vertebrate animals is a peripheral part of the visual analyzer in which the neurosensory (photoreceptor) cells of the retina perform the photoreceptor function.

Human vision does not distinguish between the many characteristics of light visible to other animals. For example, not all animals see transparent objects as humans: for example, in infrared vision, for example, silicon is absolutely transparent. The most perfect eyes in the nature of the Earth are representatives of the order of mantis shrimps. They, unlike people who divide the light visible to themselves into 7 colors, divide the light into 12 colors. Mantis shrimps perfectly see infrared, ultraviolet and polarization .

The series of works by the photographer shows the pupils of animals, insects, primates, snakes and lizards taken in macro mode. The level of detail inside the eye is amazing!
