Most people see a black crow in this picture – but can you see what it really is?

Optical illusions, or visual puzzles, are quite fascinating because they trick our eyes and are designed to fool the mind. These illusions can be crafted intentionally by an artist, or they can be created by accident, appearing on a photo or painting intended for normal use.

Regardless, they are always a great way to get some brain-teasing going. Keeping a healthy mind is nowadays very important since work and studies put a lot of stress on us. Optical illusions are the perfect way to help us wind down and relax a little.

On that note, one of these unintended optical illusions has been circulating the web for a while. Let’s find out if you can see what’s hiding inside the picture!

The image was first posted on Reddit – and quickly spread to other online platforms. Baffling people all over the world.

The illusion drew a lot of attention. Most people had never seen anything like it.

Can you see what it is? If not, we’ll reveal the answer below.

It’s not a crow

Robert Maguire, who posted the illusion on Twitter, writes: “This picture of a crow is interesting because…it’s actually a cat.”

And of course, he is right!

At first glance, it undeniably looks like the side of a black crow, but if you look a little closer, you will probably see that Robert is on the right track.

In fact, it is a black cat turning its neck backward while looking into the camera. The other eye of the kitten is a little hard to see, but it’s there!
