Unusual animal eye closeups

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 a vision function. In humans, about 90% of information from the outside world comes through the eye. The eye of vertebrate animals is the peripheral part of the visual analyzer, in which the photoreceptor function is performed by neurosensory (photoreceptor) retinal cells.

Human vision does not distinguish many of the characteristics of light visible to other animals. For example, not all animals see transparent objects as people: 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. Praying mantis can see infrared, ultraviolet and polarization .

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