We start with an image of an older gentleman and his hair. His white hair looks so similar to smoke, that the actual smoke behind it looks to be a part of it all. Either that or his head is on fire. This picture was taken by Jonathan Higbee, who is known for these kinds of photos.

Okay, this one absolutely made me do a double take. At first glance, partially due to the way the grating resembles a grill, this group looks like fried chicken. However, it is a group of really cute puppies, all ready for playtime.

Here’s a picture that could scare someone. This person set themselves up for a bubble bath and returned to find a bit of a surprise. The bubbles formed the shape of a body and a very realistic looking butt.

This is one of those that was perfectly timed. As this guy went to take a photo of something, the wall behind him looked like the design was coming out of the lens. It looks even more perfect because the camera and wall design colors nearly match.

Sometimes, a picture like this would be a warning sign of sorts. This bottle of wine had bubbles that perfectly lined up to form the creepy shape of a skull. Maybe it’s a signal that you should cut back on the booze.

This might be the coolest picture of them all. This person decided to take their dog out on the water with them. That meant the dog got the opportunity to ride on a jet ski. The way this photo was taken, makes it look like the dog has the arms and is riding on his own.

Sometimes, there’s something in the background that can completely change the outcome of a picture. This good old-fashioned dog turned his head perfectly to line up with a tree that has branches that look like antlers. It’s a deer dog!

I’m not even sure how this happens. If you’re trying to hide from a picture, it’s understandable to put a bag or something in front of yourself. That seems to be the case here with this bag featuring a cat’s face. However, you’ve got to question how the bag is being held.

A perfect counter image. First, we have a potato that seems to be looking at you with sadness at how you’re about to eat it. Then there’s the mixer, which seems horrified at the job it must do to those potatoes.

The angle a photo is taken at can cause all sorts of illusions. Here’s one that was perfectly taken of an ant on a cup. In the background, a helicopter was flying around, and the angle the photo was taken at makes it look like the ant is in some kind of action movie. Maybe it’s Ant-Man.

Back to Jonathan Higbee. His penchant for these types of pictures comes to the forefront again. This woman almost seemingly meant to hold up this book in front of her face. One that has another woman’s face on the cover. The position is nearly perfectly lined up.

If you don’t scroll all the way down on this picture, you’ll see a cat who looks to be in deep thought leading on his paws. In reality, it’s a cat jumping on another, and the paws are from the cat underneath, attempting to block the attack of the other.

Okay, so here’s one that is confusing even after a few looks. A boy is taking a photo of a woman who appears to have zebra legs. But of course, she’s not a real-life centaur. Instead, she seems to be sitting on some kind of zebra statue. We can’t determine where her legs are though…

This one is just borderline inappropriate. For some reason, this woman is carrying around a purse with a woman’s body in what looks like underwear. The bag’s position gives off the illusion that the body belongs to the lady herself.

When water is clean enough, the transparency can cause some incredible images. That was the case for this body of water. The closer the rocks, the clearer the water. It’s so clear that it looks like the little mattress this person is on is floating in midair.

Without seeing the other angle, this one is hard to explain. Something on the other side made it look like this baby giraffe’s shadow is a unicorn. Mythical creature? Maybe not.

We’ve all heard those tales about a cat being stuck in a tree. Heroes come and save them, but this little fella doesn’t look like he needs help from anyone. In fact, the small branch in his hand looks like a tiny little machine gun. Who doesn’t adore a tough looking kitty?

Olives look weird to most people, and this picture showcases exactly why. All this person wanted was a martini. They got their olives, which unfortunately included one that seems to have eyes, something stuck in its head and is also somehow sticking its tongue out.

Again, this is one of those photos that will make you look twice. This girl attempted to take a selfie, only for something to seemingly appear over her shoulder and join in on the image. A closer look shows that it is just a piece of her coat sticking out with buttons that look like eyes.

The shadow in this image shows off the shape of a cat standing on top of a door. However, there is seemingly no cat around. What is making this shape?

Here’s one that literally made me laugh out loud. This half gallon of chocolate milk was clearly dropped on the ground and is now all busted up. Hilariously, it perfectly made an angry face, probably looking at the person who dropped it with disdain.

Timing is a key for most of these images. As this person passed by this tall, skinny tree, it perfectly lined up with their own tall hair. It really looks legitimate.

It’s all about perspective, baby. You might’ve thought these were two photos, but you are wrong. This is one photo that just so happened to take advantage of some great angles.

Okay, fine. This may just be an old avocado – but to me, it’s so much more. To me, it looks like a dragon egg, and I love it.

Tattoos really are works of art – just ask this guy. His is a true optical illusion, right on his body! I bet people are staring at it all the time.

Take a long look at this one… what do you think it is? If you’re like me, you thought it was a UFO. But in reality, it’s just a car door. How lame.

It’s so cute! A little panda! Of course, reality hits and it’s just a cat. Still totally adorable, but a little less exciting.

If I were to hike down this trail, I would 100% try walking on this path. It would end pretty badly, though, because it’s actually a river. The leaves are simply covering up the water.

This one is one of the more straightforward ones we’ve seen so far, but it’s still a sight to see. It’s a horse that looks like a unicorn! Or a pegasus, I really don’t know the difference.

Does this look like two cat portraits were stitched into the outside of the carrier? It does to me. But it’s actually just two cats chillin’ inside.

I really don’t know what’s happening in this one. I could never wrap my brain around it, other than there’s weird light hitting the ice. Regardless, it looks like the entrance to another world.

Winter equals frozen cars, but for this guy, it looks like a bunch of birds. How insane! Who knew ice could be so cool (there’s a pun in there somewhere…).

And finally, this is camouflage at it’s finest. Not only did I not really see the puppers, but once I did I still couldn’t make out his figure completely. He should be a spy.
