Alex Kirkbridge took this beautiful photo for July’s 2006 edition of National Geographic Magazine. It’s orignally called “Visions Of Earth” and shows Bubba, a big fox terrier, while he is cooling his feet during a game of swimming-pool fetch in Crystal River, Florida. Light shining into the pool creates a mirror on the underside of the water’s surface, giving the dog his four-legs look. Friend of mine sent me this picture, you should check more of them here.

    i get it! It is possible, I can do that! I did it like 10 times with my cousins’ dogs.

    hah, how would that be a mirror…unless you cut up a dog…
    It’s clearly just taken underwater.
    Nonetheless, it’s pretty cool.

    This looks like a drawing, not a photo.

    For the non scientifically minded, look up “total internal reflection”.

    Cool pic though

    stupid illusion,rdc

  15. silver says:

    It’s cool, but don’t dogs already have four legs??

    I’m confused! And also, you’re right, if it was a mirror, you would have to cut the poor dog’s legs off!

    Oh well!

    i fink dat dis is a gr8 illusion bcoz itz soooooo simple, but at da same time itz pretti cool, coz it lookz like itz photoshopped coz itz such a cool illusion!! lol

  18. Rosie says:

    That would make a scary/slightly cool coffee table! =P

  19. Peter says:

    I don’t get why this would be scary.
    And I’ve got to admit that I won’t believe that this is a real photo… Maybe it is, but I’ver never seen the surface mirror something that clearly even though I dived wuite a lot in my life. And the dog must stand absolutely still for at least 10 seconds, otherwise you’d see small wave-circles around his legs…
    Well, I can’t prove that it’s not real, but I#m not convinced…
