Eyeball oops

Sometimes when photographing The Kids and using the flash, I get weird feedback from their eyes.  I know that’s normal with animals, and it’s interesting from time to time when seeing the differences between various species and what the light brings out (e.g., squirrels reflect amber or orange, opossums and raccoons reflect white, humans reflect red, and so on).  Cats, on the other hand, reflect all sorts of things depending on the angle at which flashed light enters their eyes and bounces back.

These two images of Loki, both of which I intended to discard, wound up as intriguing examples of feline photoreflectivity.  In the interest of full disclosure, they were also easy marks for a quick picture post.
