I’m pretty sure you’ll have no trouble at all spotting the hidden owl in the image next to this article. I’m little embarrassed having to admit I have had this photo on my computer for over a year now, but never discovered the hidden illusion – up until today. So, beat me shamelessly and discover the illusion in lesser time. If you like all sorts of Spot The Object Illusions, you’ll have merry time visiting this specific category.

Another question I wanted to ask all of you – How many of you use Optical Illusion of the day widget? The little application that pulls the latest illusion from this site’s RSS Feed, and shows it on your PC desktop, Mac dashboard, Google Homepage or Facebook profile? Which one is the most popular in your experience? Would you recommend it to any of your friends? Have you experienced any bugs interacting with them recently? Help me learn the facts, improve this site (…and all of its content), and most importantly – feel free to share your improvement ideas!

    I use the igoogle homepage. Only comment is that sometimes when I click on it to go to the website it takes a little time to actually load the site, other than that I love it!

    Found it almost right away! But maybe you can use the excuse that it’s always easier to find something when you know what you’re looking for.

    I get the illusions via RSS, and it’s a lot of fun! Thank you, and keep up the good work! :-)

    haha!! it took me ages to figure that one out, nice illusion!!

    I use iGoogle too and I think its brilliant. Every time I want to look up something on goolge, the illusion catches my eye and I end up looking through the site!

    I use the mac widget- its perfect except that it switches illusions in the middle of the day (but thats probably just because of the time difference, because i live in hawaii

  • Chris

    I use the iGoogle widget. It works great. It didn’t take me long to spot the owl. It’s fairly obvious.

  • karel

    i use the widget on my google startpage and it works great. nice work, keep on going!

  • Quentin

    I’m using the widget for my iGoogle homepage from France and it’s working perfectly !
    Sometime i need time to discover the illusion but i’m often very surprised when i see it !

    I hope you’ll continue for a long time !

  • Tobias

    I learnt about this site from the Google Widget and still use it to this very do. Also as mentioned before, it takes a while to load the site at times.

    its a owl!!!!!!!! yeah!

  • P-entertainment

    I use the Google Homepage widget and I’ve already told people to add it. Though it seems to have a problem when I’m using Opera, sometimes the last picture wont show so I have to press the link to the site, not much of a problem but I thought I should let you know. Anyway, check my mails about the Mighty Magic Tricks site ;)

  • David Oblas

    i use the igoogle homepage widget, and my experience is that it’s great! I love my igoogle page, and this widget is right at the top next to the daily news.

  • Love the site!

    This is great! Only thing about these types of illusions is that it’s just a picture pasted on to something else… Not amazing like an impossible structure might be…
    Still good though

    I use iGoogle widget. This is my fav thing I have on my homepage. It works perfectly.

    I use the gadget on my Google homepage. I look forward to seeing the new illusion daily. It’s a pretty cool app.

    Cute :)!

    I use your widget at google. I love that you get a new one every day! Thank you.

  • Me

    I saw that illusion in another web. I thought it was great at the moment I saw it. Still looking great!

  • Anonymous

    I use it on the igoogle home page.

  • Snowman25

    I’m also useing the IGoogle Gadget, but sometimes, theres just nothing inside the illusion frame o.O
    But really only 1 minute a month or so…

    Great Searching ^^

    I used to have the Mac widget but found it didn’t work much of the time. I now have it as an application in Facebook and check on it fairly regularly (enough to know when you haven’t updated in 24 hrs.)
    Thanks…I do enjoy this site.

    I like the real illusions, not the ones with amateur Photoshop hacks doing second-rate work. I’ve seen some good stuff here recently though.

    Igoogle here too !!

    I use the Mac widget! In fact, I downloaded it last night. Funny you should mention this…

  • di

    i use the mac dashboard widget. it’s awesome in that it updates everyday, but i dislike how i need to be taken to the website in order to view commentary. perhaps it’s possible to change the widget such that commentary appears on the widget itself or flip side of it (to save dashboard space).

    just my opinion
    great site though, i enjoy seeing new illusions on my widget

    I use the Facebook Profile Application. It normally works fine, but every now and again the thumbnail doesnt load, in fact, its doing that right now.

  • soccersquirt

    Nice illusion!!!

    I use both the Mac widget and iGoogle gadget, and they both work seamlessly.

  • Anonymous

    Its strange and nice at the same moment.

    I wonder if he can see whit his nose?
    Or that the pig’s ears are the Owl wings?

  • Anonymous

    I saw the owl on my igoogle homepage before I even knew what I was looking for! But yeah it’s really handy using it on igoogle.

  • Sergio (from Brazil)

    I use the gadget on my Google Homepage, so I can see it everyday.

  • Ted

    i use google, same that sometimes it takes a while, and also sometimes it doesn’t appear on the homepage for me

    I use the mac widget, and it is awesome. it updates itself every time there is a new illusion, and links right to the site. Never had a problem

    mac widget

  • Anonymous

    I found it right away.
    I use it on my google homepage. I have never had any problems at all. I actually would recommend it. I can see it whenever I click to go to my email, which works well because if I see a new illusion is up then I can click on it and come right to the page.

  • jackorjoe

    Hey, I love your site! I have the facebook application and my only comment is that if there’s multiple pictures it only shows the first one so it helps if you mention the fact that there’s more early in the description so I know when I need to go to the site. Thanks for the great job.

  • Queina

    I have the pc widget, got it from Yahoo. It always updates when there’s a new illusion. Interestingly enough, I often see the illusion on the little thumbnail before I even come to the site, like todays. Just find it kind of funny.

    igoogle, no problems
    i dont like this illusion its boring

  • Factor

    naming the image ‘owlsnout.jpg’ really gives it away…

  • stillmon

    i use the igoogle widget

    my only problem is that the images sometimes dont completely fit, but i usually click it and go to the site anyway

    i use the mac widget and check it daily. =) i love this site.
