We LOVE a good optical illusion and this one could be one of the most challenging we’ve seen yet.

An aerial picture of camels taken by photographer George Steinmetz has gone viral for one reason. When you at the photo, at first glance it appears that the camels are walking normally across the landscape, in actual fact what most of us see as camels aren’t really camels at all.

That’s right, the dark outlines are in fact their shadows rather than the camels themselves. The lighter shapes at their feet are the backs of the camels as they head to grazing pastures.


The image was taken back in 2005 but has recently resurfaced online, leaving scores of people confused.
