It’s possible that some folks perceive a different picture. It’s no secret that a fresh photo has been doing the rounds on social media lately. Just a basic photo of what seems to be an individual’s domesticated crow perched on the floor.
It’s amusing since it’s not a crow. It’s not even a bird, in fact.
It was discovered on Reddit by Robert Maguire, who subsequently shared it on Twitter in October of this year. This post has received more than 164,000 likes and more than 58,000 re-tweets throughout time. People were baffled by the creature’s appearance. One yellowish eye adorned its dark body. There was also a beak, although it didn’t appear like the beak of any bird in particular, especially a crow.
More than 40 species of crows make up the genus Corvus. It is possible to find them on every continent except Antarctica. The Australian Raven (Corvus coronoides) has yellowish eyes, as do other species.
The ‘crow’ sparked a flurry of online conjecture about what it may be. Maguire has at long last provided the solution.
Instead of a bird, the photo showed a black cat with its head twisted in an upside-down position.
An ear is what gives the ‘beak’ its strange form. It helped the cat-as-crow illusion because the photo didn’t display the cat’s tail, which would have revealed the whole trick. This led many people supposing that they were gazing at a crow because of the bird’s black feathers and shiny appearance.
An optical illusion is one of the oldest tricks in the book and is now experiencing a renaissance owing to the Internet. They may be a lot of fun, and some of the more intricate ones can be very stunning. They may also help individuals be more aware of their environment and refrain from making snap judgments.
To boost the odds of seeing something fascinating and increasing one’s interactions with others, it is important to practice observation skills. Those who notice changes in their life like it when others do, too.
Is this optical illusion familiar to you? What was the first animal you saw? It would be great if you could tell us about any other interesting optical illusions you’ve come across.
