Animal Eyes As You’ve Never Seen them Before: Very, Very Close

Beauty, they say, is in the eye of the beholder. After seeing these images, we’re not so sure. Taken by Armenian physics teacher Suren Manvelyan, he captures ridiculously extreme close-ups of the eyes of a variety of animals. The resulting snaps resemble something from another planet or from the deepest darkest oceans of our own. Dramatic, captivating and rather eerie too, up close, mammal and bird eyes definitely score higher than amphibians, reptiles, fish eyes.
