The Challenge

Lets talk sense, sensory organs to be precise. For this group of challenges we are going to look at these wonderful organs that for most determine life or death.

For this challenge we are looking at eyes. 96% of all animals have them in one form or another. Why? Well it’s another sense used as a primary source for fight or flight. The eyes of different creatures are have evolved over millions of years to best suit their needs and habitats.

There are 11 different types of eyes, these are:

Normal eyes
Pit eyes
Spherical lensed eye
Multiple lenses
Refractive cornea
Reflector eyes
Compound eyes
Apposition eyes
Superposition eyes
Parabolic superposition
Other (which include good fliers like flies or honey bees, or prey-catching insects like praying mantis or dragonflies)

So on to the challenge, add your close-up images of eyes or an eye of any wild creature with eyes.
