Brain-tickling optical illusions

Brain-tickling optical illusions ever

Psychedelic Swirl

 One of the most amazing "fake motion" illusions. Believe it or not, this is a still image! (source)

Is It Green?

 The square in the center of this image by Professor Akiyoshi Kitaoka appears to have a green tint. But is that actually its color?  (source)

On The Beach

 This is a cycling image. Focus on the red dot and wait for the image to change to a shot of the beach. It's in black and white, but it will appear to be in color because of the after-image in your eyes!(source)

Wiggling Bugs

 These 'bugs' seem to be moving, but this is actually a static image. Note that whenever you focus on a particular 'bug,' it seems to stop moving.(source)

Lots of Legs

 This image by Shigeo Fukuda is a lovely essay in balance and contrast. Where do you think one set of legs ends, and the other begins?(source)
