Is it a Swan or Squirrel??

I love summertime! I usually like to take advantage of warm and sunny summer days and take the kids for a walk. Yesterday was one of the rare sunny days we’ve had in this otherwise wet and disgusting summer, so I did just that yesterday.

The kids and I went for a walk in the local park. We even got a chance to see a few little critters! First, we saw a swan…


Ooh… Or was that a squirrel??

What do you think? Is it a swan or squirrel?

It’s a pretty ambiguous image, and it could actually be either a swan or squirrel, depending on how you look at it. The first animal that jumps out at me is the swan. The left side of the image looks like a swan, who has tucked its beak down onto its chest. The right side of the image looks like the swan’s tail feathers.

Remember, though, that this image could be either a swan or squirrel. Now, look at the right side of the image again; it looks like a squirrel engrossed in an acorn or other bit of tastiness. The left side of the image, which was originally the swan’s neck and face, now looks like the squirrel’s bushy tail!

It’s definitely a fun image, and you could go back and forth all day long trying to figure out if it’s a swan or squirrel! Forget that noise, though! In the interest of time, I’m going to say that its both…

So what do you think it is—a swan or squirrel? Or both? If you liked this illusion, make sure you check out this Jeep ad campaign with lots of animal optical illusions!
