So, I’ve noticed you weren’t that excited with some of our latest posts. It’s either that I’ve spoiled you over time with some of our better submissions, or maybe I have lost the connection with good ol’ old-school stuff. You have to realize though, it’s hard to keep everyone happy at the same time. While there are heaps of regular visitors that come here for years, I sometimes forget how significant amount of you represent new-comers. Even though there are bunch of superb optical illusion pictures just sitting on my desktop, sometimes I feel they’re too similar to something we have already posted before. Then I prolong their publishing date, and more often then not – completely forget about them. Anyway, be sure to tell me what you think… Do you mind some of the effects being repeated in somewhat similar photos, or should I strive to bring more diverse stuff? Btw, check out what user named Culpeo created:

    Been following this site for years and you do a wonderful job of changing it up. I check it every day to see whats new. Keep up the good work.

  2. sara says:

    there is a big wolf or maybe fox looking over its shoulder and the tiny fox is getting nervous ;-)

  3. Nancy says:

    I don’t get it. What is it?

  4. Care Bear says:

    Imagine the fox’s embarassment when he tells his friends he was almost eaten by a bush. They’ll laugh him right out of the foxes union.

  5. Tim Clark says:

    I didn’t see it at first…found the reading glasses – no help…Was beginning to think you’ve been smoking too much medicinal marijuana when I finally picked out the illusion. Nice job!

  6. Emma says:

    Took me a while, had to step back a bit but I think it’s another fox in the negative space near the trees. Like it’s looking down at the fox. Pretty cool.

  7. Ms. MO says:

    The shadows threw me off – and still do, but I see the ghostly fox between the tree limbs. I feel I’m still missing something.

  8. AmateurCommenter-924 says:

    Cool… giant dog in the trees… :D Nice illusion…

  9. blah says:

    the trees form a fox figure

  10. josephine says:

    Some similar stuff is ok, but definitely the more different..the better! (I personally do love sterograms tho :)

  11. Jupiter says:

    I like this. Simple and cute. And there is bound to be some repeats. You can’t escape it. I don’t mind because more often then not it is a different look at the same type of illusion. I don’t mind seeing another tree illusion (like the one above) because I have not see that exact one and I look forward to see what the next illusion will be.

  12. Mary Ann says:

    i kinda like it

  13. Eric says:

    I don’t uderstnd. What’s the illusion?

  14. mark says:

    I think the past few submissions especially the McGurk Effect were very very good!!!

  15. Dolphin says:

    Love these kinds of illusions…

  16. psb says:

    This is a mistake….sorry

  17. Jesse Croyle says:

    No Opinion, love what you do keep it up.

  18. lencho says:

    I just stumbled on to this gadget and I was impressed. I plan to see more when I can find the time, Thank you.

  19. Zenbot says:

    I have never had any complaints about your posts. They can’t all be winners, but even your non-winners (I won’t say losers) are still interesting. My preferences have always been towards the art you post, especially those amazing Li Wei photos you turned me on to (he’s now one of my all time favs), and all those incredible sidewalk chalk art you manage to find. Keep up the good work.

  20. billyg420 says:

    i see a dog

  21. Merla says:

    I enjoy all the optical illusions, from the subtle to the obvious.
    This one reminds me a bit of Gorey…

  22. Meegan Galante says:

    It’s like hiding in the tree! It’s must be stalking that raccoon!

  23. nonya says:


  24. ZL123 says:

    Ooh! I saw it on my widget! :) Pretty nice.
    I think you should go for some new stuff. :)

  25. Tone-e says:

    Do you realize that none of the comments on these illusions tell you what they are about? Like is there something we are supposed to find in this picture? Does it have a double meaning? etc. Instead I find that the comments are more directed to frequent visitors saying that this site cannot get to all the illusions requested. My request is that you let us know what we are looking at. Thank you.

  27. Jan says:

    Nice one, big dog between the trees

  28. David Blair says:

    ??????? I think I may need a hint or two for this one. I only see what appears to be the head of the animal in the upper part of the two tallest trees. And I may be way off the mark with that guess!

  29. Morgan says:

    I don’t understand ‘Haunted by Culpio’ What am I supposed to be seeing?

    I’m new to your illusions and find hitting the random button a nice touch for browsing. Many of the pics aren’t that interesting though, the obviously staged and some photo shopped images are just silly, not at all as facinating as one of the first I saw, was it a hand or a girl?

    Thanks for your efforts to inform and entertain. I’ll keep coming back.

  30. A Snail says:

    Its nice to see different artists interpretations of classic types of illusions like the one above.

    How about devoting at least one day a week to new forms of illusions, and at least one day a week to well known illusions (in the sence the illusion is well known like the one above (a hidden image in the picture), but not necessaraly the artist or the picture its self). That way you would have something for new people and the regulars.

    Also, chaning the subject for some reason I’ve typed in a couple of replies rescently, and just as I’ve finished and about to submit, the page refreshes and looses my comments. Not sure why but its definitaly not me requesting a page refresh (I’m using IE9).

    Keep up the good work

  32. Jess says:

    I like this one :) Very sweet image. And I dont mind repetition as long as its not identical!

  33. Lucia says:

    There is a big fox between the trees. It is watching the black little fox

  34. Loza says:

    Love the illusion – sometimes these can be really obvious but this one was subtle.
    As for the repetition/diverse issue, I think it’s fine to repeat the really amazing illusions every now and then. You can’t find something completely new every day!

  35. Anonymous says:

    I don’t mind you posting the same concepts over and over again, but could you please remove those scary pictures beneath your posts? I don’t want to see axed-up bodies or people with their lips pierced you know.

    • (the other) Anonymous says:

      I totally agree. I’ve been taking care not to scroll too too far down… some of those pictures scared the bajeezuz out of me.

  36. Airmont Steve says:

    As Eddie Fisher said “If things go wrong dear, and fate is unkind, look over your shoulder, I’m walking behind.”

  37. z2d4th says:

    it’s a staring dog.

  38. Jazza says:

    That is pretty Awesome, And im happing for stuff that is similar:)

  39. Devam Doshi says:

    I dont mind efects being repeated!

  40. Jozsef says:

    i cant see a thing

  41. none says:

    i see 2 dogs

  42. y201 says:

    is it a fox formed between the two trees in the middle of the picture?

  43. Bill says:

    Very good I like.

  44. littledutchgirl53 says:

    I have followed this site for about a year and I always enjoy the illusions posted. I am amazed to see so many diverse creations whether they are similar or not. Keep up the good work!

  45. Abob says:

    First comment! Also, thats really cool, and i know how hard it is 2 keep every1 happy.

  46. Elodia says:

    This is a great optical illusion – can’t you see the beautifull fox with his full fluffy tail in the trees. Just blur your vision and you’ll see it.

  47. Cici says:

    whoa there’s a wow in the tree thts cool

  48. stubby herky says:

    I can see another fox, or wolf? at the…. :) am i right?

  49. SkinnytheSkinner says:

    Wow… That’s way cool. And I do think you should strive for diversity in your posts. That’s definitely a plus.

  50. Phillip says:

    Is that supposed to be a cat?

  51. Taraton says:

    I like diversity in the illusions, but I don’t mind seeing the same concept more than once in a row. I would rather it be a cool illusion rather than a boring one. I think you do a great job mixing it up and keeping it interesting.

  52. Padma says:

    why has our world come to this? Really people really?

  53. greenbird says:

    i just think you should maybe post more than one at a time if they’re really of the same theme and very similar to each other. maybe that way people will get fed up with one type of illusion for long enough so you may stack up on some new once of the related topic…

  54. Consuela says:

    I like your illusions; they grace my igoogle page. This morning I too was thrown at first by the shaddows; they didn’t look like the trees they represent & the fox didn’t have one, then I spotted it… The trees behind the fox form another fox! Very cool.

  55. ken klaus says:

    your very good, very clever

  56. This optical illusion is a giant fox in the trees. I enjoy this page every day, my only problem is that I am left in MODERATION many times, I would like this to change, Otherwise keep up the good work………..:)

  57. How long should it take to get out of MODERATION???????………:(

  58. Tadao says:

    Looks like you made it to the yahoo article pages. It come up on the frint page a little while ago.


  59. Luke says:

    I dont get it. im clueless

  60. john says:

    yes there is a fox, but there is also a lot of cats in the background. some are inverted and some are just what they are

  61. Nikki says:

    I do Not see the big fox?! where is it?

  62. Charlotte says:

    Is it possible to get in touch the creator? I would like to make a derived work from this users image…would appreciate any assistance.

  63. Luke says:


  64. That’s some instructional blog post

  65. Zeb says:

    other animals may or may not be there in the trees and such. If you dont see the fox look in the open space between the trees. when you see the giant fox you know why the cat is nervos.

Speak Your Mind

You can add some images too.
