Visitor of ours sent me this relaxing photo of a beautiful Hacienda. However, there is one (obviously hidden) thing in it. You’ll have no problem spotting it. How long did it take? A second or two seconds maybe? Even more?? If you don’t spot this one immediately, you can’t consider yourself an optical illusion expert :D I don’t know if this thing was made for fun, or the poster was actually used as an advertisement for this product (check the link only after you’ve spot the hidden object). The style author used, greatly reminds me of the Digital Swimming Pool illusion.

  9. Memeee says:

    Look at the Picture when it is smaller, than it is obvious

  10. Ed says:

    Can someone please tell me what is the illusion here? It is just a pool with beautiful grass, sky and villa.

  11. Ed says:

    Never mind, I think I found it. It’s the invisible man who jumped into the pool which explains the splash.

  12. Dawna says:

    I am an office manager at a for a tobacco wholesale. Maybe, that’s why I noticed it just as I looked at the picture. It’s is obviously an advertisement for Camel cigarettes.

  13. lol says:

  14. kevin says:

  15. habschick84 says:

  20. tinkerer says:

    I saw it right away!

  21. Justice193 says:

    saw it instantly, pretty cool illusion that’s really easy to switch back and forth between what you see depending on where you look :)

  22. Hannah says:

    I think its an ad for camel, seen lots like that with fire in the shape of one and stuff, cool though :D


  23. Trixie says:

    I didn’t see it initially either – the name of the image is a dead give-away though. ;)

  24. kia says:

    I would love to have that picture on my wall :D

  25. Calvaire1 says:

    took me like 1 sec

  28. Frank says:

    Hint: click on the picture and look at its thumbnail instead. Or walk away from the screen :)

  29. Michael Hughes says:

    The tag gave it away.

  30. Mary says:

    hint: look at the angled trees and what shape it makes

  31. ali says:

    About a half a second :)

  32. Blair says:

    Yeah, it was right there, but I still like it, nice one!

  36. Ms.Observant says:

  37. Dr. Chos says:

  38. Teh Chrisizard says:

  39. jenny says:

  40. emma is a whore says:

  41. Jen Steffen says:

    You threw me off with the digital swimming pool reference. I kept looking at the diving board. lol. But yeah, I saw the camel right away.

  42. Rick Haviland says:

    Took a couple of seconds, but it’s really kind of neat. I like it. Yes indeed, yes indeed.

  43. unknownperson says:

    cool, took me 5 seconds ;D

  44. maahsgirl says:

  45. peace-angel says:

    Too easy.

  46. CC says:

  47. mike says:

  48. galloots says:

    is it a camel in the trees?
    i couldn’t find it for 5 min…

  49. Shayna says:

    is it the splash in the swimming pool?

  50. Jake Karpinski says:

    Aaagh!! I can’t see it! LOL.

  51. Fred says:

    This is very creative photography. At first I thought it was shopped but I found no obvious evidence in a quick zoom. If altered, it was done skillfully. This appears to be an example of why I have always contended that photography is an excellent, if not perhaps difficult medium in which to portray illusion. It takes a creative mind and a sharp eye to recognize potential illusory effects in any particular view. In this example the effect is visible from one perspective. In order to capture the image, one would need to be close to the exact location to the subject to see it or be able to recognize the potential from any other angle.
    Thumbs up.

  52. Jake Karpinski says:

    I see it now

  53. Dolphin says:

    I saw it as soon as I looked at it.Very nice.I like it

  54. mikayla says:

    whoa! thats pretty cool! it only took me 6 seconds to find it and my mom did not see it at all until i pointed to it! =) awesome!!!

    p.s by the way my mom said that she was not good at optical illusions after this one. hahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahgahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahhahahhahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!=o

  55. Ryan says:

    I don’t see anything at all o_O??

  56. suri says:

    A decent photoshop job. Palm trees normally bend towards the general wind direction in the area and dont grow in all directions. Though direction can be manipulated with the way the tree is planted cant do so with the height. The shadows look a bit awkward with tall and short trees with the same length of shadow

  57. Tristan says:

    just above the pool is an airplane, made out of the steps and beach chairs

  58. Nikolai Scheel says:

    i had to zoom out the page then i got it immediatly

  59. tb20 says:

    I don’t see it:-( what is it?

  60. Nizati says:

    I looked at the mini version from my gadget and wondered what an optical illusion had to do with a green camel :P hehe.

  61. Dolphin says:

    I saw it as soon as I looked at it.Very nice.I like it.

  62. N says:

    im a bit dissapointed that its not an Illusion of the day anymore its like Illusion of the couple of days! make 1 a day vurd, its not that hard….

  63. funny says:

    cool i saw it right away lol

  64. Oh, I saw it right away but had to think for few seconds to check if what is see is correct :) Great work !

  65. Archana Suresh says:

    Very nice…

  66. servilan42 says:

    One really obvious illusion and I found one not so obvious. Pretty cool.

  67. Kamil Nowak says:

    At First I thought The pool was a 2d painting on the ground. Then I thought, ‘Isn’t it a little weird having palm trees growing in grass? Then I looked at the Thumbnail image and I saw the SPOILER ALERT

  68. Nora says:

    help! i own i’m not an expert! where/what is it?

  69. Nora says:

    oh. it’s a camel. got it.

  70. chris says:

    i didn’t see it at first.
    2 tell the truth, i logged off the site, because i thought it was that illusion where that guy jumps out of that empty room & screams

  71. Jake O'Neill says:

    lol that looks funny

  72. Bad Breath says:

    A camel! :-) Although the picture itself isn’t very “real” looking!

  73. NeeL says:

    I’ve spotted the illusion! That explosion on the rooftops on the right looks like a cloud in the background!

    It’s even fun to come here and look at the obvious illusions. :)

  74. ky says:

    the only reason i found it was because i scrooled ovr the photo nd it said palm-tree camel.

  75. Jilly says:

    people, you blind???….xD it’s a camel…haha

  76. Terra says:

    Jeez, I knew there was something up with the trees, but I couldn’t figure out what it was!

    That was a good one!

  77. ali says:

    That’s weird, I commented before but it didn’t show up. It took me about half a second to see the camel… although then I wondered if that wasn’t the illusion because it was so obvious. Clicking the other links in the main post that were all camel-themed though made me quite sure that’s all there was to this one.

  78. derrick says:

    the trees form a camel in the middle. the leaves are the camels body and the trunks are the legs

  79. servilan42 says:

    Am I the only one that sees the “man” in the pool? Just past the end of what looks like a diving board, there is a splash in the water. If you look in the middle of the splash, there is what appears to be a transparent image of a man from the shoulders up. Or am I hallucinating?

  80. LOLZ says:


  81. DaEgg says:

    NeeL? WTF? Explosion? WTF? It looks like a cloud cause it is a cloud. WTF?? And sevilan42, I think you ARE hallucinating. XD

  82. Erik says:

    It took me aprox. 0.35 seconds to see the camel.

  83. wtf says:

    wtf i cant see a fffin’ thing

  84. starle says:


    I agree with you, man. i hate that thing and i feel like i gotta check *everything* to make sure thats not gonna happen. but vurdlak already posted it as the scariest optical illusion ever.

    the camel is nice. i had to look at the comments *and* the product link before i saw it. but i *thought* i saw something in the pool. it kinda looks faded, like a watermark or something. *shrug*

    • sames. since i saw the scariest illusion ever i have to hold my eyes shut when i press the random illusion button and look at the comments first. anyone else or am i a wimp?

  85. Patrick says:

    This was used as an ad in the Frankfort airport

  86. erica says:

    got it right away.

  87. Ryanna says:

    the trees make the shape of a camel


  88. klarissa says:

    it was the first thing i saw in the pic.

  89. cheychey says:

    omg. i glanced att it and thought it was a camel, at first. assoon as i saw it..

  90. Edd says:

    Am I the only one who saw a penis?

  91. fusiondub says:

    duh! I saw the camel from the thumbnail. lol. that’s why I click the image to enlarge. :))

  92. random guy says:

    i saw a boat in the water

  93. fakie540ollie says:

    The first thing I saw is the third tree from the left has a fork in it’s shadow, what’s that about?

  94. craig says:

    this is way cool ’cause the camels aren’t the illusion at all…. there are faces in the pool but i cant make the whole thing out….is this in 3D??? wish i had some glasses. oh yea, the shadow on the left side… of the edge of the pool… of what appears at first glance to be water splashed is a clue as to something there. HELP ME
