i'm only guessing, mind, but i think what's going on is that
1) the different color splotches are different 'patches' of cells and
2) the different patches of cells dilate or contract based on hormones/ chemicals released in various moods - similar to the way the pupil reacts not just to light, but also to mood.
but i'm not a biologist, so i have no idea if that's how it actually works. i just know that when i'm calm, my eyes are dominant-green, and sometimes when i'm worked up, my eyes are dominant cloudy/grey blue. a darker shade of blue - but definately blue.
