I have a pretty awesome artistic illusion that will definitely make you look twice today! It certainly made me look twice, anyway. Take a look at this wave illusion…

How long did it take you to notice that there was more than meets the eye in this wave illusion? I originally skimmed by this image, but something made me go back and look at it again. Only then did I realize that the frothy white crests on the waves were actually little white bunnies. It’s like a turbulent bunny storm!

I hope you liked this illusion as much as I did! If you loved it, be sure to rate it with five stars below! Even if you hated it, don’t be shy—go ahead and rate it. I can take some constructive criticism now and again…

Love this wave illusion? Head over and check out this frog or horse illusion too!

Good morning! I spent the weekend repairing a tiny leak in my roof and laying a new (gorgeous!) floor in my living room, so I’m a little tired and a lot sore this morning. I could definitely use a little boost this morning, so let’s get those sleepy weekend brains woken up and raring to go for the new week ahead! Well, okay, so maybe “raring to go” might be pushing it a tad. I don’t think I’ll be doing much raring today, but a little brain exercise certainly couldn’t hurt. This morning’s illusion is great for this! Take a look at this horse illusion and try to decide if he’s coming or going…

So, what do you think? If the horse coming or going? Is he being ridden away from you or toward you.

This can actually be seen either way. Since there are no details and the horse is nothing more than a black shape, it’s almost impossible to tell which way the horse is going!

But, I’m going to take a wild guess here and say that he’s actually riding away from us. The caption at the bottom of the photo states “to the ball park he wends his way”. So, I’m going to assume that he’s heading away from us and toward the ball park. I know—I’m reaching, but I’m going to stick with that theory!

When you’re done trying to figure out whether the horse is comin or going, be sure to head over and check out this horse silhouette illusion!

Mother Nature can be a tricky little thing sometimes. It’s not uncommon to spot optical illusions in nature or even just rocks or trees that look like other things. This sensual rock lady illusion is a pretty wicked example of this…

Okay, so this rock lady illusion was probably Photoshopped, but it’s still a pretty awesome image! It probably got you to do a bit of a double take, didn’t it? You may not have even noticed that anything was there if I hadn’t mentioned something about the lady hidden in the rocks! Now, that’s one of the things that makes an illusion pretty darn cool!

If you liked this illusion, don’t forget to rate it with the stars below!

This rock lady optical illusion is pretty cool, but you can see even more illusions from Mother Nature here!

Everyone is probably familiar with the classic Rubin’s vase optical illusion right? This well known illusion is an ambiguous illusion which can be seen as either a vase or two faces facing each other. There have been many recreations and variations of this illusion, and I’d like to add another to our own list here.

This vase illusion is a little different, because it does not have two profiles facing each other. Instead, this illusion looks like there are two heads facing us on either side of the “vase”. Check it out…

Instead of noses making the indents in this vase optical illusion, it’s the ears. The idea is still the same, but it gives the vase a bit of a different look.

My black lab puppy is about 7 months old right now. And, let me tell you…he’s a little hellion! That doesn’t mean that I don’t love his furry little butt to pieces, but some days, man! Wow! Lately, he’s taken to trying to “make friends” with my poor cat. Unfortunately, making friends involves barking at, chasing, and swatting at the poor little dear. Needless to say, she doesn’t really find this all that friendly or as funny as we do, and the swatting and hissing commences. I now completely understand the term “fighting like cats and dogs”. Which brings me to today’s rather ambiguous illusion—the dog or cats illusion…

Which did you see first in this illusion? Did the dog jump out at you? Or did you see two mischievous little kitties?

Well, we all slept in again this morning, and wouldn’t ya know! The kids missed the buses for school and we had to run them in. So, there’s my excuse for the late illusion post today. That seems to be happening quite a lot lately, though. Things have been so hectic with all sorts of family shenanigans and too much work. I’m overtired and in serious need of a vacation! Aren’t we all, right? I’d love to escape to somewhere quiet and deserted, wouldn’t you? I’m thinking a cabin in the mountains…and today’s mountain illusion is making want it even more!

It seems like a simple drawing of a mountain, but there’s a little more to it. There be wildlife in them there hills!

Can you find the hidden animal in this illusion? I’ll give you a hint—it’s a dangerous animal in the mountains…

Need another hint? Turn the image upside down.

Good day! I hoe everyone is enjoying their Memorial Day weekend! If you’re having a get together, don’t forget your camera. It’s a great time to take some family photos and capture some memories. Sometimes you just get a picture with a perfect pose. Everyone in the picture is situated just so, and the whole scene looks great!

And then…sometimes you end up with pictures like this…

perfect pose

It’s the body of a woman and the face of a man. I would call this a perfect pose, if you’re trying for an optical illusion picture! Otherwise, I’d say it’s a bit unflattering. It certainly is fun to look at, though, isn’t it?

Good luck with your own pictures and have a happy and safe Memorial Day!

If you think this is a perfect pose, be sure to check out this unfortunate posing fail!

Looking at a moving illusion is always a little freaky. On one hand, your brain knows that the image is a still image and can’t be moving, but on the other hand, your eyes comprehend movement.

But, what makes a moving illusion appear to move? Moving illusions are still a bit of a mystery. but one theory involved how our brains perceive different colors. We perceive some colors faster or slower than other colors, giving the illusion of movement even in some still images.

This illusion, for instance, is made from diagonal stripes of different colors and white and black squares.

Does this look like it’s moving to you? Try running your eyes slowly over the image, then staring at the center. Does it move differently depending on how you look at it?
