We love optical illusions, no matter if they were made with forced perspective, colors, or makeup. Indian wildlife photographer Sarosh Lodhi made one by snapping a photo at exactly the right time. He photographed two zebras, and people can’t seem to agree which one is looking at the camera. Can you guess which one is it?

Sarosh tells DIYP that he took the photo in December 2018. He was in Maasai Mara, Kenya, photographing a herd of zebras. He noticed these two coming closer to each other. At one point, they overlapped creating this optical illusion, and Sarosh just had to press the shutter.

Ever since he shared the photo on social media, it has gained a lot of traction and plenty of comments. And people can’t seem to agree which zebra is looking at the camera. Honestly, it took me a while to figure it out, while my buddy John guessed it instantly.

I won’t tell you which one it is. Take a guess and let us know what you think and if it took you as long as took me. :) And make sure to check out more of Sarosh’s work on his Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

        Thanks James, You helped me justify my choice. Look at the DOF, the left mane and neck is in focus so it’s the animal in front.

    I’m confused as to the voting. Is it from our prospective or is it from the zebras?
    From our prospective I voted the right one.
    It cast a shadow on the zebra behind it.

    I know, I know, the one that is looking at the camera is the front one!

    The one on the left. The ears that are in the back could only be to the zebra on the right by their positions…

    The left one. The set of ears on the one behind couldn’t be facing that way from the left zebra, though from the right it’s perfectly concealed behind the front zebra
