What Do Cats See?

Artist Nickolay Lamm (previously at Neatoarma) took the information we have about cats' vision and reproduced it through photography to give us a glimpse of what they see, compared with how we see the world. Some of the differences are related to a cat's ability to see in low light (they cannot see in total darkness) and their ability to detect the quick movement of prey. When the eye specializes in these things, other visual gifts are sacrificed. For example, great night vision means the bright colors of daylight are muted.
