Since our eyes are trained to focus on darker shades first, we often forget to pay attention to what’s hiding in the negative space – the white background and other bright areas in this case.
To spot the third animal – a big white cow – focus on the white space between the two black water buffalos. Did the third figure finally emerge?
As you can see, three animals were hiding in the picture this entire time!
