Description Presented here is a vast gallery of many different forms of Optical Illusions. Whether these optical illusions are conveyed through fractals, photographs, architecture, art, or old fashioned pen and ink, they are bound to remind you that "seeing is not believing."

Caution!!!! Some of the optical illusions on this blog may cause dizziness or possibly epileptic seizures. The latter happens when the brain can't handle the conflicting information from your two eyes. If you start feeling unwell when using this website, immediately cover one eye with your hand and then leave the page. Do not close your eyes because that can make the attack worse.

Illusion of Danger

I have seen this image around the net for awhile now. I thought that I would post it here because everywhere I saw this image posted people assumed it was this big shark and they all wondered if this photo had been altered in any way. The truth is this picture is real and has not been doctored in any way. After all it comes from surfshooter.com a site that specializes in surf action pictures.

The illusion of danger comes from our minds. We see this and automatically think shark, but the reality is that this is a dolphin. Click on the picture to go to surfshooter.com. They have a second shot where the tail of the dolphin is easier to see and identify.
