I am a big fan of the old Jastrow Duck-Rabbit illusion….

So imagine my joy to find a taxidermy version…

And this rather strange one…..

and this real life one….

Which is your favourite?

    They do look like duck/rabbit but what do they taste like?

  7. Geoff says:

    The real life one, definitely. Superb!

    I have enough trouble remembering whether it’s duck season or rabbit season!

    Took me a while to see the real-life one, but once I did, it instantly became the best. Though to me for some reason it looks a bit more like a guinea pig. Second best is the taxidermy version.

    I like the first one. They also remind me of the whole thing about ducks looking like they’re wearing fox masks.

    Last one is like duck-rabbit-cat illusion

  13. DeepField says:

    The last one takes a couple (or more) seconds to figure out, and seems to be unphotoshopped. My favorite.

    The last one’s definitely a duck who appears to be looking straight up at the sky (advantages of having a relatively long neck!)

    The penultimate one’s a crafty bit of photoshopping, the one above that’s probably been created by the taxidermist who fancies themselves as an artist (further evidenced by whatever-that-is poking out of the lemon in the background), while of course the top one is the original illusion.

  15. […] duck/rabbit (it’s got 4 eyes), but a bastardised Daffy and Bugs. This led to me being sent an excellent selection of duck/rabbits from Richard Wiseman’s blog. If you’ve got good duck/rabbit links, leave them […]
