Optical illusions can really make you feel strange.

There's something about the way that they can disrupt our sense of reality that makes us feel incredibly uncomfortable.

This picture was originally shared on Instagram, and people went wild, questioning whether it showed some super greasy legs - or some expertly placed white paint.

For some reason, the feeling of confusion is strangely pleasant.

Perhaps it feels nice to give up control and admit that the world is just weird and crazy.

One such picture, taken at Rio Mora National Wildlife Refuge, has gone viral this week.

And it's had everyone scratching their heads in confusion.

Among the 1700 comments are people who refuse to believe there is a mountain lion hidden in the background.

The refuge went on to post a series of photos captured at the same time to prove it was real.
