Woman Accidentally Takes Strangest Optical Illusion Photo Of Endangered Bird

Due to civilization and the expansion of culture and industry, wildlife habitats are decreased vastly. Human beings are too into their digital social life and forget the gorgeousness of nature. Many networks raise more awareness and bring wild animals’ beauty to the public by displaying galleries of them. The rarer the species are, the easier to go viral their photos become.

Hence, when Franziska Speck saw about 50 to 60 birds coming in to land on the beach at Oyster Point in Queensland, Australia, she wanted to take pictures of them immediately. They were no regular shorebirds but Eastern curlews, an endangered species concerned with being extinct. Their long, slender, downcurved bills and mottled brown plumage were so unique and enchanting that Speck desired to capture the priceless moment frame by frame.

Since Eastern curlews visit beaches for only a few months out of the year, Speck knew she would never have a second lucky chance like this one to meet these rare birds again. Because it was warm in Australia (Spring here is the three transition months, September, October, and November, and Summer is the three hottest months, December, January, and February), the curlew flock were enjoying their fresh, nutritious meal.

While hunting the prey, these curlews flew up and down and moved quickly, so it was difficult to snap some sharp and clear photos. After finishing the job, Speck checked the result. That was when she got amazed by her own work.
Most of the pics were pretty good, which made Speck feel pleased. Moreover, several snaps looked strange and illusional. One had a two-reversed-beak bird in it.

And another image showed a curlew attempting to catch its prey and looking like its beak was piercing through another bird’s head.

Speck’s photoshoot of the curlews was more than perfect. She couldn’t help laughing when rewatching the pics. It was a memorable souvenir at the beach for the lady. Besides, we have more valuable perfect-timing photos of an endangered bird clan.
