Dalmatian illusion.pngHere's a classic visual illusion of a dalmatian dog in a sun-dappled field, but really, all you see are black dots against a white background. Our brain makes sense out of this black and white stimuli, and "sees" the dog.

This summer I was hiking and suddenly, from the underbrush, in romped the dog seen in the second photo. He posed briefly, then dashed off to join his walking companion.

What is also very cool about the dog is that he was walking in the vicinity of the wonderful Niemes aqueduct and its famous link known as the Pont du Gard.
