20 Incredible Eye Macros


Bored panda is here again to kill your boredom.

Are you ready to look into the second most complex organs besides brains?

Are your ready to look at the mirror of the soul so close, maybe even close enough to see the soul?


After seeing these photos, you will never look at the human eyes the same way, nor at the fly eyes.

Still want to see them?

    I never thought about how complex eyes are ’til now. They’re slightly scary I think except for them catterpillars eyes, they just dont look real, but they are rather cute ^.^

  • James

  • Evolutionist

    @Doug How long have you been studying The theory of evolution or biology or any other branch of science connected to the abiogenesis to have qualifications to say such nonsense? I love how these Creationists always say that it’s impossible for life as we know it to “appear” by evolution, and yet they haven’t read even one book explaining the concept of abiogenesis.

    No, that’e exactly the point. They are not random : the ones that work better are kept, the ones that don’t work die off.
