Well, actually, pretty much nothing extraordinary – the same things your average non-ghostly, non-glowing eyes see.
In fact, this owl isn’t so much a study in scarlet as a lesson in albinism – one of nature’s most magnificent genetic doodles. This owl is an albino, meaning that he was born with little or no melanin, the chemical that gives color to our eyes, skin, and hair. And he is absolutely amazing!
This albino owl’s lack of color makes his eyes appear bright red because we can see straight through the iris to the blood vessels inside!
Isn’t he stunning?
