Deer "Blue Eye" Instead of Red Eye

Hey Gang,

I wanted to share an interesting feature about Deers that I discovered on accident. Deers are know for their large black button eyes but if you look closely, you will see a rectangular blue box which appears to be their pupil/iris reflection. We usually have red eye when the flash hits the back of our eye (retinal area). With these critters, it appears their eye pupil is rectangular in nature and the back of the eye casts a gorgeous blue color. I was close enough to these guys to throw fill flash on them which caused the blue color bounce back. I did not edit these in Photoshop in case anyone is wondering. BTW, look hard at the last picture....that is his tongue and not a photoshop effect...just lucky timing.
