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 sight. A person through the eye receives about 90% of the information from the outside world. The eye of vertebrates is the 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 representatives of the order of mantis shrimps possess the most perfect eyes in the nature of the Earth. They, unlike people who divide the visible light into 7 colors, divide the light into 12 colors. Mantis shrimps perfectly see infrared, ultraviolet and polarization .

A 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!
