Awesome photos: Animal Eyes - Up close and personal

In people, they say the eyes are the windows to the soul — and that same saying could apply to animals, too. From the rainbow-colored compact lens of a horsefly and the gentle eyes of a giraffe to the tiny beads on an elephant and the thoughtful look of an owl, these closeups offer a rare look at the personality of animals all over the world.



Very, very scary bugs - awesome photos!!

THEY look like aliens from some futuristic Hollywood blockbuster. But these ugly bugs are in fact commonplace and have almost certainly invaded your home.

They were captured by British science photographer Steve Gschmeissner, 61, who uses hi-tech electron microscopes to magnify the creatures more than a million times.

We are living in exceptional times. Scientists tell us that we have 10 years to change the way we live, avert the depletion of natural resources and the catastrophic evolution of the Earth’s climate. The stakes are high for us and our children. Everyone should take part in the effort, and HOME has been conceived to take a message of mobilization out to every human being. For this purpose, HOME needs to be free. A patron, the PPR Group, made this possible. EuropaCorp, the distributor, also pledged not to make any profit because Home is a non-profit film. HOME has been made for you : share it! And act for the planet.

Yann Arthus-Bertrand, GoodPlanet Fundation President
