The Amazing World of Cat’s Eye Macro Photography


When you combine the natural beauty of a cat's eye with good macro photography, the resulting photos can be quite remarkable. And believe it or not, there is a quite large community of photographers who are into this facinating niche. Here are some of the more interesting images from Flickr that we found in this unexpected subject area.

Wow, I’m going to go and look at my cat’s eyes right now!! I know they are yellow, but what else lurks in the mysteries of macro??

I love the cat eyes! I have several photos of my kitties, and I decided to “take a closer look” at them, and when I zoom in really close, it’s amazing the detail in their eyes!
Great photos BTW!

Very nice. They are all interesting, but my favourites are the ones by Simon Hammond, by Amy Miller, by Pasipasi as well as the last one. The cat in Pasipasi’s photo looks just like mine. I will have to try this with my two cats 🙂
