Squirrels in Action Optical Illusion

I’m not exactly sure whether I already showed you this painting, but if my memory still serves me well, I believe we overlooked one particular item when presenting Octavio Ocampo’s marvelous opus! Those of you getting first impression on our new optical illusions via “Optical Illusion of The Day” widget will have a heads-up seeing the illusion here. The rest will probably see nothing out of ordinary at first. But if you move your head away from the monitor, or squint your eyes slightly, I promise the squirrels and their tree-playground will present you with a whole new meaning eventually!

    Oh, there’s two hidden pictures. Didn’t notice that dude in the branches before Jerome pointed it out. Yes, it looks something in the direction like David, or so.

    But there’s also that woman’s face in the negative space.

  2. Love this Illusion!

    Through the widget, I thought I was supposed to see letters in the squirrels.
    Then, after ten seconds I smiled and said “oh hello there!” to the woman appearing on my screen.
    Too bad Jerome bluntly pointed out there also was a man in the branches before I could notice him myself.

  3. I don’t see anything unusual except for the naked man and lady’s face. Is it inappropriate or something?

  4. i saw a girls face from far away to the monitor screen and one squirrel is like a eye and another one is like lip of the girls face.

  5. Beautiful illusion!

    I see the naked man and the pretty woman in the background!

    Also, the squirrel in the woman’s mouth with a cupcake :)

  6. I saw the lady first and only saw the squirrels after I saw the title of the picture. The naked guy I only saw after I read the first comment.

  7. Nice illusion!!

    1. First squirrel from left is an eye and second squirrel is the lips of a lady.

    2. Naked man in the branch.

  8. everytime I squint my eyes they water so everything looks blurry – must be the hayfever!!!! will try again later!

  9. I didn’t notice the man either. I thought I’d solved the illusion. I saw the women before the squirrels lol never noticed the branches.

  10. I saw it immediately, I thought I was the only one who notice the beautiful women, so I shared it with every one at work.

  11. At first I wondered about the fat squirrel: was is holding a big nut or was it fat and wearing shorts?
    Then I figured out the girl’s face.
    I didn’t even know to look for anything else until I read the early comments… then I found the man.

  12. if u look at the squirrell on the left with its tail up that is the lady. the rest of her is in the sky.

    the man is on the tree ranch that they are standing on

  13. The branch is also part of the illusion — a separate one. It is a main reclined on his back with one leg extending into the air.

    The lower squirrel is standing on the man’s head.

  14. AGHH! FINALLY! It took me like, forever to see the lady. I got the man right off. I was really starting to get frustrated!

  15. Finally,
    had to zoom out to 50% before seeing the face of the women. Right squirrel makes out her lips; the left squirrel is her right eye and eyebrow. The branch marks out the contour of her face(right side). The out of focus trees between the two squirrels outline the negative of her nose.

  16. What about the woman’s face on the head of the lower squirrel on the right? Squirrel’s left ear is her nostril and left eye is her mouth which is open like she is scared. Her right eye (which also adds to the scary look) is the tip of the tail and the squirrel’s right ear. Her hair is the squirrel’s tail. Part of it anyway. That is what I saw first. I didn’t see the other woman that is made from both squirrels for a while. After I found the man leaning back.

  17. I saw the man quickly.it took me a while to see the lady lol I freaked out when I saw the lady. hahaha
    nice illusion

  18. !!!!!SPOILER ALERT!!!!!

    The man is in tree branch. The woman is harder to find. The left squirrel is one of her eyes, the branched hanging from the top are the other. The other squirrel is the lips, and the branch forms the shape of her face.

  19. You all are wrong. The squirrel on the the right makes the lips, the squirrel sitting higher ir make the eye and eyebrow. The backdrop with the trees contours her nose. And you also have to turn your heaed slightly left.

  20. i can’t find the woman AT ALL! it makes me want to cry… i can see the man… reading some of these comments just mkes it worse! everyone sees a different woman!AAAAAHH HELP MEEE!!! (please!)

    1. Haha! Finally! I saw the man immediately, but it never really registered. When I looked for the “woman,” i kept expecting to find an entire body. Tilting my head to the left really helped! A beautiful piece of work.

  21. I have no idea what you guys are talking about all I see is an evil tree trying to eat the little squirrel, no woman or man, although the squirrel with his tail up looks like a small face?

  22. I FINALLY see the man lying down and the lady’s face. I even see the man’s penis…really. Look at it again.

  23. this took me FOREVER to find! you really do need to squint and tilt your head to the left! AWESOME ILLUSION(:

  24. oh my!!
    I was going to share this with my students in our illusion of the day, but I just found the man!!!
    Great illusion!

  25. Hmm.. i turned my head the wrong way… jeez, i was confused from the comments. The squirrel are the lips… o.O turned out to be the left one.

  26. oh my crap!!
    it took me so long to figure it out!!
    like once i finally got the lady i almost started to cry of happiness but im still tryna find the man

  27. Very tricky. The way i found it was I saved the image, then i rotated it. The entire squirel on the right is the lip…the left squirel is an eye and an eyebrow. That thing hanging in the middle of the painting is another eyebrow..just half..the trees between the squirrels are shadows of the outline of her nose. Best way to notice the face right off the bat is turn your head sideways, left squirels tail is the left eyebrow, that stuff on the top of the painting (branches) is the other eyebrow and eye.

  28. omg!! took me forever!!! I saw the man after reading where he was, but for the woman, I had to zoom out as far as my computer would let me. yeesh!!! I like this one!!!

  29. I FOUND THE LADY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!EUREKA!!!!!!!

  30. i saved image to desktop and looked at the small picture icon of the file on my desktop and i was able to see the womans face :D even now i can only see it when its small. the woman’s eyes are the left squirrel and the branch in the air. she is looking down towards the baranch on the bottom… which is also a naked man laying down.

  31. The man is the branch he is loads tinyer than the lady and his whole body is there. The man has a leg up. The right squirrel is on his face. The right squirrel is the lady’s mouth while the left one is her left eye and brow. The man is the branch not the space under it

  32. saw the woman right off, took someone to say ‘man’ for me to realize what all it was. saw the legs and *cough, cough*. :) had a hard time seeing his head.
