Photographer Captures a ‘3-Headed Deer’ Optical Illusion

Wildlife photographer Renatas Jakaitis was shooting in the forests of Lithuania when he managed to capture this unusual optical illusion photo of a “three-headed deer.”

The image may appear at first glance to be the result of some clever Photoshop editing, but it was actually the result of good luck and perfect timing. The Story Behind the 3-Headed Deer Photo
Jakaitis, a 45-year-old photographer based in Kaunas County, was stealthily and patiently hiding in the woods of Penevezys County back in 2014 when this special unexpected moment occurred in front of his camera. He had been slowly working all day to get close enough to the skittish animals before the opportunity arrived to photograph them.
