Photographer Reveals Macro Shots of Animal Eyes and They Look Breathtaking

Eyes are the windows to the soul, that’s why people’s eyes are so captivating – the more you gaze into them, the more you lose the perception of time and space. But what about the eyes of animals? We rarely get a close look at those, but they are as versatile as human eyes, and sometimes even more! Surem Manvelyan, an Armenian photographer, was dazzled by the beautiful shapes and otherworldly landscapes hidden inside their eyes, so he created a series of beautiful macro shots, capturing the magic of animal eyes.

Lama

Not so long ago Manvelyan finished the photo series named “Your beautiful eyes”, showcasing the mesmerizing beauty of different human eyes. He was thinking what to create next and naturally started taking photos of animal eyes.

Horse

Having finished the project with human eyes, the photographer was ready to capture animals. It required more skills and intricate work in different lighting conditions, but he was ready for the challenge.

Husky

Manvelyan started taking photos of animal eyes wherever he could find them – parks, forests, zoos, and even his own backyard. People also contacted him offering their own pets for a photo shoot.

Nile Crocodile

Human eyes are striking, but they lack the diversity you’ll find in animal eyes. Due to different living conditions and habitats animal eyes adapted, changing shape and size, developing special features that make them unlike anything else you’ve ever seen.

Alaskan Malamute

The eyes of animals that live on land are completely different from the eyes of the species that live in the water. Usually it’s pretty obvious that you’re looking at the eye of a water creature, but it’s still hard to tell which animal it belongs to.

Armenian Mouflon

On Facebook, Suren Manvelyan even played a game with his followers, offering to guess what type of animal was depicted on the photo. Sometimes it was almost impossible to guess just by looking at the eye!

Ray

Creating the photo series was no piece of cake as the photographer had to get pretty close to the animals to take a picture. When Manvelyan was taking a photo of the lama’s eye, he spent a whole hour with the animal to make it feel more relaxed around him so he could come close enough to make the shot.

Tokay Gecko

As hard as it was to befriend different animals, it was an amazing experience and the breathtaking photos are proof of that. Manvelyan pointed out that no animal was hurt during the photo shoots – he was careful and respectful to all his animal models.

Long-Eared Owl

It was a huge revelation for Manvelyan to see just how different animal eyes were from ours. When he took photos of people, he realized that human eyes were pretty much the same and shared a similar eye structure.

Chimpanzee

It didn’t matter what was the person’s skin colour or race – their eyes were the same! It also didn’t matter whether a persona was young or old.

Rockfish Eye

The eyes of fish have a very different structure from the animals that live on land. They look like precious stones!

Camel

Looking into the camel’s eye it’s hard to believe nature actually created such a stunning picture. It looks like a landscape from a faraway world!

Cat

The close-up of a cat’s eye looks absolutely stunning! When you look at the photo for the first time it’s actually hard to tell who it belongs to.

Blue Crayfish

Crayfish have compound eyes, which means they consist of many smaller eyes that together create a picture of the world for them. Their view angle is pretty spectacular, which allows them to spot even the smallest movements around them, but the image resolution is pretty low.

Tiger Python

Snakes have eyes, but they don’t use them much as their vision is quite poor. All they can see is shapes, but with no details. Most snakes are night hunters, so they don’t really need eyesight to do that. You can visit Suren Manvelyan’s Instagram for more photos.
