A mind-bending photo of a bird has been causing a stir online with some unable to believe it is real.
The picture, entitled Gap, was captured by Japanese photographer Kenichi Ohno.
It shows an egret wading in the shallow water, with a concrete wall behind it casting a shadow on the lake.
The perspective of the photograph makes it seem as though the bird has been edited on top of two different backgrounds.
A different view of the same scene reveals how the concrete block creates the optical illusion.
Social media users have been left baffled by the picture.
One said: “There is no way this is not photoshopped!”
Another added: “This one hurt my brain until I figured it out.”
The photograph was submitted as part of the 39th Japanese Nature photo contest put on by the The All-Japan Association of Photographic Societies.
It was honoured as a special selection winner.
