This is a crop of the "Cat tongue closeup: 3/4 view" image, focusing on the tongue.  The original image is a closeup of a cat's tongue from a three-quarters angle as the cat licks a sheepskin rug.  Numerous barbs (spines; filiform papillae) are clearly visible across the width of the tongue.  The papillae are largest in the middle of the tongue, and get progressive smaller towards the edges of the tongue.  The three-quarters angle allows the viewer to better see the height of the barbs.  See the uncropped version of this image for more context.
