Unusual macrophotography of the eyes of animals

Необычные макрофотографии глаз животных

The eye (Latin oculus) is a sensory organ (organ of the visual system) of animals that has the ability to perceive electromagnetic radiation in the light range of wavelengths and provides a vision function. A person receives about 90% of information from the outside world through the eye. The eye of vertebrates is the peripheral part of the visual analyzer, in which the photoreceptor function is performed by the neurosensory (photoreceptor) cells of the retina.

The sight of a person does not distinguish many characteristics of light that are noticeable to other animals. For example, not all animals see transparent objects as people: for example, in infrared vision, for example, silicon is completely transparent. The most perfect eyes in the nature of the Earth are representatives of a squad of mantis shrimp. They, in contrast to people who divide the visible light for 7 colors, divide the light into 12 colors. Praying mantises perfectly see infrared, ultraviolet and polarization .

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