Look Again! It's Not What You Think It Is

Here are some illusions that are so mind-bending, that you are going to have to look twice to figure it out! 

Did you know that an illusion doesn't usually involve smoke and mirrors? Illusions are all around us. We just have to look around us to spot one. Our environment can often play tricks on our eyes. We just have to be keen enough to spot them!

In the case of these illusions, people happened upon them pretty accidentally. We've compiled a list of accidental illusions gathered from Reddit, Imgur, as well as AcidCow. Here are some illusions that are so mind-bending, you'll have to look twice to figure it out!
