Roses and Noses Optical IllusionThere was so much going on for the last few days I don’t know where to begin from. After waves upon waves of new visitors “flooding” our site, the server almost exploded. So I made the decision and implemented cache technology into our web headquarters. The server load went down, yet our “Random button” stopped functioning. Same goes for Facebook comments. Please bear with me until this get fixed. I’m on it. If you notice anything else that acts weird (like star ratings?), please tell.

For the illusion, it’s pretty similar to the one we already had. Those flowers on your right are much more then just flowers. At least from what I have seen. Can you spot the illusion(s) yourself? Where is it?

BTW, how do you like Jill’s posts? In my view she got hang of it very quickly! I believe she’ll manage to develop even deeper connection with you guys in the following days, and perhaps even present you with some of her fresh ideas for this site!

  6. valerie says:

    i think it’s a bunch of faces hidden throughout the flowers and stems

  7. John says:

    Jill is doing a great job!! I confess that I used to cringe at the poor grammar, punctuation, etc.

  8. Ancy Wings says:

    no see it

  9. Wolf says:

    The picture is to small to get the effect.

  10. kITTY says:

    Neither do i

  11. Mariya says:

    No doubt, it is very interesting, however, i see only roses.

  12. Conrad says:

    hmm i see faces

  13. ;-) says:

    I see one face… and maybe I’m hallucinating but I think the flowers have faces too…

  14. Dave says:

    love the illusions – hate the intrusive popups.

    I have to say that on more than one occation I have almost decided not to come back.

    I understand the need to pay the rent as it were but “popups” are intrusive and annoying.

    That’s all I’ll say about it. Mostly I love this site, suggest it to others and usually start my day here.

    I just thought I’d let you know


  15. Caino says:

    I can seee wee little faces !!!!!

  16. DJ55 says:

    I’ve found 10 images of faces in the flowers and leaves. 5 in the big flower! Probably more, but I can’t see them now.

  17. Sami says:

    HaloDUDE80: Nothing special. Just few faces. F.ex. if you look at the rightmost flower, there’s a face staring upwards and right below the flower there’s a face looking at the flower. This illusion uses the power of pareidolia.

  18. Adam Merrill says:

    I think there are faces, but I can’t quite tell.

  19. Tamara says:

    Me neither.

  20. Tamara says:

    Oh, ok… I see it. If you look at the white space you will see it.

  21. selena says:

    i see faces.

  22. jojo says:

    They’re all faces! Like in the cartoon Alice in Wonderland

  23. Julie says:

    FAce in flowerone right side, face on bud on left side, faces on leaf coming off base of stem, face inb leaf just above last one

  24. Jesta says:

    Faces! Faces! Everywhere!

  25. Paco says:

    I see a bunch of faces

  26. Digit says:

    Correct me if I am wrong, but there are faces in the flowers, shadows and leaves.

  27. Usha says:

    Wow!! So many hidden faces !! undefinedC:\users\169779\My Pictures

  28. Usha says:

    Four faces !!!
    Assuming the flower number from left to right
    1.Between flower 1 and leaf 1(left down)
    2.Between the last two leaves(right down)
    3.On the flower 4 (right most)
    4.Between flower four and dark coloured leaf below it (right middle)

  29. Suzanne says:

    I was about to give up, then I saw a man with his head tilted up in the negative space toward the right flower. Is her wearing glasses?

    And, are there two faces in the negative space at the stem? I’m not sure….

  30. Grace says:

    Ct 2 faces that’s it.

  31. Apurva says:

    Quite a few faces hidden everywhere…

  32. Catatonic says:

    Not sure if im right, But I see some faces in the dark section of some of the flowers

  33. RickyM says:

    The previous Bouquet Illusion used negative space images – the gaps were the profiles of faces, but I can’t see that in this illusion. Sorry, I can’t yet see the illusion.

  34. Michelle says:

    I only can see a face, like a granny wearing glasses..

  35. col says:

    wake up and smell the roses

  36. sue says:

    oh yaa…i see a lotta faces..one inside the flower..lookin up and another in between the flower and the leaf and some mre.. woow…

  37. Deepthi says:

    The illusion in the picture is the faces. We can see different faces in the image

  38. Kelsey says:


    So far I’ve spotted 14 “hidden” faces. and a “cup-cake” :)

  39. Martin says:

    One face to the bottom left of the large flower, and three faces just above the stem of the flower. There might be more but I just had a quick look.

  40. Kelly says:

    I do…faces w/in the flowers (hence the noses)

  41. Alyssa says:

    me too…

  42. Becki says:

    I can see faces in it, but only when I see the full picture: missed it in the iGoogle app! Nice one :-)

  43. superlegion says:

    hmm…i don’t see it either…nope…nothing…just roses with very small noses attached to them by sticks…..*spits orange juice* ROSES WITH VERY SMALL NOSES ATTATCHED TO THEM WITH STICKS?

  44. jenny b says:

    It´s a cupcake …. i swear !!!!

  45. me123987645 says:

    my guess is it has something to do with noses.

  46. Terry Essary says:

    Look for the eyes!

  47. Wait096 says:

    Random faces in the leaves and flowers.

  48. kayset says:

    i can c the “mask of love” illusion in this one, but i’m not sure if its the same.

  49. Jonny Pedersen says:

    I see one face i the rose

  50. Matt says:

    They all got Faces!!!

  51. Terry says:

    I needed to enlarge the picture by 200% then I saw faces in the buds,in the leaves and the gaps between the stems of the flowers. A very subtle illusion.

  52. Tara Upchurch says:

    I saw 4. It helps to enlarge the picture.

  53. Nisheeth says:

    I think I can see 5 faces in the flower petals, is that the solution?

  54. Wikus van de Merve says:

    There are few faces in this picture. Not so fancy illusion tho.

  55. HannesK says:

    Wow, that took me a while to notice. I first saw the illusion in the large flower and then looked for the same elsewhere.

  56. Claire says:

    I love the site, and am a daily follower, but I’d really appreciate it if you would credit the artist for all the images you display. Who, for example, drew this? Not only is it helpful to us, surely it’s morally right (not to mention the done thing) to give credit to any artist when their work is used.

  57. Jacey says:

    If I look closely, I can see some faces in the flower buds and in the leaves and stems.

  58. I8UrCake says:

    I spotted four faces and cookie monster.

  59. wendy says:

    There are faces hidden in various places

  60. TampaTimbo says:

    I see a face in the large open flower, looking up, even appears to have glasses on. Is that all though or am I missing more?

  61. TampaTimbo says:

    I see another, looks like the same face, just below the large flower in the open space between it and the leaf. Looking up to the right.

  62. Terrorish says:

    I don’t see it either

  63. Code Monkey says:

    I see at least 3 faces. One between two sets of flowers, and 2 more on the petals of another flower. There are probably more, but I’m notoriously bad at finding all the faces in images like this.

  64. Natalie says:

    Jill is a nice addition to the site!

  65. KReaturez says:

    i see 1 face…

  66. Tom says:

    A number of faces, including one in the “negative space” just to the left of the large flower on the right. He’s wearing glasses.

  67. Jace says:

    I see them all looking at me! Cool

  68. Deepak says:

    Holy moly!

    I’ve just found it!!!

    Look closely to the flowers and you see faces!

    Good luck

  69. Defe55 says:

    I see what looks like 2 faces at the bottom, plus a few scattered around. BTW, ive been a long time fan, but this is my 1st comment :)

  70. Care Bear says:

    How appropriate. Roses (et al) and noses don’t exactly get along well–especially during hay fever season. Good one.

  71. ann says:

    I see at least 5 faces…

  72. Care Bear says:

    Also reminds me of Donald O’Connor and Gene Kelly.

    “Moses supposes his toeses are roses,
    But Moses supposes erroniously,
    For Moses he knowses his toeses arent’t roses,
    As Moses supposes his toeses to be.”

    Check Singin’ in the Rain if you don’t believe it.

  73. Muriel says:

    I see faces

  74. bigmomma says:

    I wish I could make it bigger to see the detail and keep the other stuff on the page out of my peripheral vision. I believe there are faces on the leaves HaloDUDE80. Hard to say

  75. lopela says:

    Neither can I…

  76. Patrick says:

    I have find 6 face

  77. Abob says:

    Oh, i get it!!!
    save pic. go 2 pics then open. zoom in on stem, near flowers. ghostish face appears. Rotate 180 degrees. Look near first face. half of a face appears. Cool, isnt it???

  78. lurker18 says:

    3 faces

  79. Lil'Smily says:

    i only see face, and that is on the left of the biggest flower there, i can see it’s nose mouth, and eye

  80. Kimon Frousios says:

    There are various faces, both in positive and negative space, full-face and and profile.

  81. khushi says:


  82. Danni says:

    yeah there are faces but it is rather my eyes playing triks on me or when i scroll up and down wit my arrow keys the leaf on the right moved up and down…

  83. Brix says:

    I see ten including the guy who looks like Nelson whos body is a face.

Speak Your Mind

You can add some images too.
