Just look at that cute, fuzzy little caterpillar. It has such vibrant colors and those spines seem so unintimidating that they’re mere existence is actually kind of adorable.
But, wait a minute… we are on Mighty Optical Illusions blog! An ordinary picture of a caterpillar (no matter how cute it is), would just be weird here. Fortunately, this’s not a little baby butterfly, it’s actually a group of European Bee-eaters cuddling together on a small tree branch. The birds do look so much like a caterpillar though, that photographer José Luis Rodríguez named the image Oruga de Plumas, or “caterpillar of feathers.”

Wonderful picture! Thank you!!
This is so cool- can it be done with any thing else? :) ;)
I thought it was a caterpillar till I saw the title. Beautiful
WOW! I think this is the best illusion I’ve ever seen on MOI
Sorry, all I saw when I looked at it was birds. I can see a Caterpillar now it’s pointed out, but not originally.
The tail kinda gives it away
The birdies are soooooooo cute!!! :3
I dunno about you guys, but I saw the birds first. Then when I saw the title, I thought it was a caterpillar that looked like a bunch of birds…but it wasn’t.
Very Cool Love it !! I would love a picture of this to hang on my wall , it is really cool
love love love love love!!!!!!
At first i thought it was a caterpillar that looked like birds…

Saw the birds right away but CUTE!!! =)
props to the birdwatch who got this shot!
I do not see any caterpillar?
if that’s an acttual picture i want to know how they took it with out scareing the birds!
I thought it was a caterpillar with spikes…
I WANT THE BIRDS.
That’s one of the coolest pictures I’ve ever seen!
I think it must work better as a thumbnail.
I have the MOI as a thing on my iGoogle home page, and every single time I’ve seen the picture from there, I see it as a caterpillar
Def works well as thumbnail, saw caterpillar when saw it on google, took me a little while to work out what the title meant then saw the birds! Is a really good one actually.

An avion species of like plumage congregates…
