    Does it ever make you wonder what you really see in your environment? Couldnt nature do similar things as a defense?

    Like animals with adaptive camoflouge, or harmless animals that look similar to not harmless ones? (Coral snakes, monarch butterflies, ect)

    Nah, thats different. That stuff is blending in with environment, not necessarily an illusion like above.

    I was thinking more like fish that could bloat their appearance. Is that called a puffer fish or blow fish or something?

    I'm going to possibly derail my own thread (yes CylentButDeadly, I see the irony ) but speaking of awesome nature stuff:

    My avatar is this unbelievable picture of a snake and a frog caught in a stalemate--the snake has the frog by the lower jaw, and the frog has it's "hand" wrapped around the snake's neck. So cool. Here's a bigger pic:

    Maybe, but it's still about fooling your eyes into seeing something else

    Somehow I married a beautiful woman so something had to have been at work. I must have been an optical illusion to her. Imagine her disappointment.
