[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One of my favorite subjects in high school was biology.
So, today's lesson: Titi's cornea and pupil.
We can also have a look at the cat senses.

Titi hardly ever goes outside although she goes everyday for her general necessities. She loves to lie down in the sun and that's exactly what she was doing when I approached her from behind and noticed that, from that angle, I had such a clear vision of the space between her cornea and her iris. It looked like a glass marble!
With my left hand, I held her down gently to make her stay in that position and with my right hand I took a few shots with my "ex-sony"!

Hardly any pp work applied here and I don't even think I cropped.

Thank you for viewing my CTD#17!

hi Lurdes,
I am actually checking photos here on TL with my cat, Flip, lying down next to me and I have to agree with you - looking at a cat's eye from this perspective is really a fantastic experience, the eye looks like a crossing between a marble and a crystal ball...
this is really a great feline shot - I love the focus on the eye and the great sharpness of the fur. it really amazes me to look at cats and this shot of yours is really an excellent insight into the cat's senses.

Bela Foto Lurdes, como de costume, aliás. Realmente o olho felino aqui mostrado é deslumbrante.

Hi Lurdes,

I trully like it very much.
Nice details in the cat's fur.
Love the shadow on the background...it does add to the scene.
Well exposed and good colours balance.
