Photographer captures optical illusion photo of 3-headed deer
At first glance, photographer Renatas Jakaitis seems to have captured something straight out of science fiction. Three deer heads appear to spring from a single body as they gaze at you from the snowy surroundings. This is not Photoshop’s job; However, this is all just an optical illusion. There is no such thing as the three-headed deer, but it’s moments like this in photography that capture the imagination.
Getting an amazing photo like this often means being in the right place at the right time. To capture this image, Jakaitis walked behind the deer in the forests of Lithuania, taking photos along the way. The sound of the camera shutter caused the animals, which were walking one after the other, to turn their heads all at the same time and produce this mind-blowing image.
It’s an incredible chance to take a photo like this, and luck was certainly on Jakaitis’ side. “I think the shutter on my camera betrayed me, because they quickly looked up when I started to capture them” he said at the time. “I was lucky enough to see them all looking at the camera at the same time before they disappeared, they all ran away when they saw me!” They must have been shy in front of the camera.
Since taking the famous photo (years ago), Jakaitis has continued to photograph wildlife. Scroll down for some of his recent photos.
