Optical illusions have been around for a long time. Playing off of our brains ability (and sometime INability) to see things that aren’t really there has become one of our favorite things to do. Using negative space, shadows, and sometimes lines that are formed simply by other objects strategically placed, we might spend hours combing through the internet to find more.
And then people began stumbling across this image…and it was stumping them. The caption said that there was a baby hidden somewhere inside of this picture. People searched and searched, making the picture larger and larger to try and find the hidden object.
Here is the picture! If you can’t find it, don’t worry, you are not alone! If you CAN find it, you are one of the lucky ones. (Some of us may or may not have spent a reaaallly long time trying to find the baby…)
It is a clever artwork that plays with negative space to form an image, and you can’t see it unless you look at the “big picture.” Instead of making the picture larger to see the image, the trick is to make it smaller. If you can’t make it smaller, take a few steps away from your computer/phone screen and look again. You’ll be able to see it!
And if you can’t…

Did you find it? Here, the solution is really clever! I admit, I never looked at the trees. I thought that the hidden baby may have been in the water below…
