Is this an apple tree or an orange tree. The only way to find out is to stare at the red dot for thirty seconds and then look at a white wall or ceiling and maybe keep blinking.
Stare at the countdown until the beautiful lady finally appears.

In Lowry's Returning from Work, we see the industrial landscape and 'matchstick' figures typical of the artist, with bent figures appearing immobilised and struck down in the art of fixation.
However, this illusion changes all that as the figures seemingly start to shuffle along!
In reality, the characters are moving backwards and forwards and only seem to shuffle because a perceptual bias has been created that favours seeing the small forward movement. This appears much larger to the viewer who, in a way similar to how we navigate through crowds using just passing glances, unconsciously extrapolates the movement forward.
Stare at the black cross on the left hand image for 30 seconds and then at the right hand image. Can you see what appears?
Hello Spy Fans. Today I have designed an optical for you showing the Queen of the United Kingdom hiding in the islands. Can you spot her? Of course you can, It is a bit obvious I know, still it was fun making it. - Spyman
Stare intently at the blue spot for at least 20 seconds then look away at a white background and a famous Klingon will appear. yIlop! wa'leS chaq maHegh!
Just stare for 30 seconds at the red cross and then look away at a white background. Merry Christmas.
This looks like it's going to be a bit boring, but believe me once you've tried it you will love it. You can produce your very own Bat Signal by staring at the cross in the middle for 30 seconds and the just look at a white ceiling or wall. Good eh?
We designed this flag using the colors green, black and orange. It doesn't have the same ring as Red, White and Blue so if you long to see the original you are going to have to stare. Just stare at the center of the flag for about thirty seconds (but the longer the better). Then look at something white like the ceiling , a white wall or an A4 sheet of paper.
The Shroud of Turin is a linen cloth bearing the image of a man who appears to have suffered physical trauma in a manner consistent with crucifixion. It is kept in the royal chapel of the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist in Turin, northern Italy. The image on the shroud is commonly associated with Jesus Christ, his crucifixion and burial.
To see this illusion you need to stare at the black and white picture on the left for 30 seconds (try not to blink). Then move your gaze to the white background on the right hand side and stare again. Can you see it? You can click on the picture for a larger view if that helps.
Just stare at the cross on the girls abdomen
This illusion is one of those 'stare and wait' pictures. In this one a beautiful young lady is posing in her bikini. But the picture is a color negative.
When you stare at the picture for about ten seconds you eyes adjust to this negative image and then the picture changes to black and white but you don't see it as black and white you see it in full color. Amazing!
