Mind-Bending Photos To Mess With Your Head

Every so often, you come across an object or an animal in real life that makes you question everything you know about the world. Who knew that nature even did that? The world is a crazy place sometimes, and photos like these remind us that we don’t even know the half of it. There is so much that nature has to offer that we haven’t even discovered yet.

Keep reading to see some pictures of ordinary objects that will mess with your mind.

Frost On A Fence

This fence looks like it was made out of wire with white fibers on it, but in reality, all of that white stuff is frost. It appeared on this fence on a cold winter morning.

Not A Microphone

This is not a photo of a microphone. It’s actually a photo of a match that was burned. The match then split, and now it looks like it’s a microphone.

A Lot Of Honey

This guy was redoing his roof when he took off a few shingles to find 35 pounds of honey underneath. These bees were hard at work making all of that sweet stuff.

True To Its Word

This “limited visibility” sign is being obstructed by another sign, so your visibility of the sign itself is also limited. That’s kind of ironic. Maybe somebody should move one of those signs.

He Wears His Heart On His Chest

This cat has a heart-shaped marking right in the middle of his chest. That’s not something you see every day. Do you think he wears his heart on his chest figuratively, too?

A Twisted Tree

This tree is growing out of the ground in a spiral pattern. Nobody is sure why it decided to do that. This tree just has a mind of its own.

Not An Easter Egg

This shiny, egg-shaped object looks an awful lot like an Easter egg, but in reality, it’s not an Easter egg at all. This is a coconut that has been husked and polished.

A Portal To Another Dimension

This door was covered in stick-on mirrors, and now it looks like it’s a portal to another dimension. It looks like you don’t even have to use the doorknob—you could just walk right through.

This Interesting Spider Web

This spider web looks exactly like Spider-Man’s mask. I know you’re thinking that this photo is probably photoshopped, but the person who posted it online swears that it isn’t.

Another Planet

This photo that was taken through a window in the Netherlands looks like it was taken on another planet. The reflections in the window make it look like there are other planets or moons in the sky.

The Tiniest Tadpole

This person found a tiny frog that still has his tadpole tail attached. Pretty soon, that tail will shrink, and this little guy will just look like a normal frog.

A Tomato Gradient

The tomatoes on this vine are ripening from left to right. The tomato that’s first in line is totally red and ready to eat, while the one on the end isn’t ready to be picked yet.

Spider-Man’s Powers

A spider decided to make a web across this Spider-Man figurine, and now it looks like Spider-Man really does have web-casting powers. Nobody is going to want to clean that spider web off of him.

A Light Snack

This person managed to capture an incredible photo of a bee getting eaten by a spider. This white spider was perfectly camouflaged on the inside of this flower. The bee never saw him coming.

Something Old And Something New

These two teddies are actually the same. Or, at least, they were the same 22 years ago. This is what a teddy bear looks like after 22 years of love.

A Lucky Strike

This sidewalk was struck by lightning, and the lighting left a permanent mark in the concrete. Who knew that lightning could cause so much damage? This is actually pretty scary to see.

A Wooden Flask

If this bottle looks a lot like a wood log, that’s because it was made out of one. A glass blower placed a glob of molten glass inside a log and blew it to form this container.

This Intricate Rust Pattern

It looks like somebody intentionally painted or designed this psychedelic pattern, but in reality, it’s rust that formed on the side of a telephone pole. Nature made this all on its own.

A White-Tailed Squirrel

It looks like somebody dipped this gray squirrel into a bucket of white paint. The white line goes beyond his tail onto his back legs. He must have some kind of genetic mutation.

“I Didn’t Run Over Anything”

A Reddit user posted this photo online with the caption, “My local tire shop has a jar full of various things they’ve found inside of popped tires.” These people definitely ran over something.

A Wreath Of Peas

This person was cooking some frozen peas when they un-froze in this wreath pattern. It actually looks kind of pretty. Who doesn’t want their very own wreath of green peas?

New Life

Somebody cut down this tree, and then a new tree started growing out of the stump that was left behind. It just goes to show that you can’t stop nature.

One Picture

This isn’t two pictures spliced together, and this image wasn’t created using Photoshop. This is what happens when a bunch of clouds roll in over this peaceful lake during sunset.

Lemon Trees

This restaurant in Italy is completely covered by lemon trees. People can sit and eat under a lemon tree canopy. This looks absolutely gorgeous. We kind of want to go to Italy now.

A Two-Headed Pineapple

This pineapple has two tops. You could say that it’s a two-headed pineapple. It looks thicker than a regular pineapple, too. It seems like two pineapples fused together to create this monster pineapple.

Nails In An X-Ray

This person was wearing some metal nail charms when she had her hand X-rayed. You can clearly see the nail charms on the X-ray. Don’t worry, they’re not actually in her bones.

A Ping Pong Ball Hammock

A spider web under this ping pong table is holding this ping pong ball in place. We’re not sure how a spider managed to accomplish this feat, but we think it’s pretty impressive.

A Two-Toned Rose

This is an Osiria rose. It’s a flower that grows with both red and white petals. It might be the prettiest rose we’ve ever seen. How come nobody gives these out on Valentine’s Day?

A Window Story

Reddit user BawSimona posted these photos online with the caption, “The sky, captured from my window in June.” It’s crazy how different the sky can look at different times of the day.

Dew On Grass

This is how the morning dew decides to sit on these blades of cat grass. It’s such a simple image, but somehow, it’s still so fascinating. Those little beads of water are so round and perfect.

Picking Up The Eiffel Tower At The End Of The Day

They can’t just leave something as valuable as the Eiffel Tower sitting around, out in the open for anyone to steal. It makes sense that they need to pick it up at the end of every day.

How Did An Owl Get In The Coffee Mug?

Imagine waking up, walking into the kitchen to get yourself a cup of coffee, and when you look down this is staring back up at you. That would not be a pleasant start to the morning.

That Man Isn’t Standing Up

Contrary to what it looks like, the man in this room is actually not standing up, he’s lying flat on his back. We’re not sure what kind of portal to another apartment is in the center of his room, but we know it’s not a doorway to walk through.

A Saw Bent Out Of Shape

So if the chainsaw, the one object that is definitely supposed to be able to cut through a tree trunk, isn’t able to make it all the way through the trunk, how are you going to cut it down with a hand saw?

Someone Was In A Hurry

Let’s hope that whoever is the owner of this shoe managed to make it off the train without getting stuck in the doors like the footwear they left behind them.

Moments Before The Splash

He’s either about to show his sick breakdancing moves to his friends on the dock, or he’s about to go crashing through the surface into the chilly lake waiting beneath him.

The Cow Knows Your Secret

You may think you’ve been hiding your secret from them all along but this cow figured out that you’re one of them. That’s why he’s taken such a liking to you.

That’s One Mature-Looking Child

What do you say to someone whose baby has the facial features of a 50-year-old man? You’d probably be better off saying nothing until you figure out what’s going on here.

Who Wore It Best?

It’s so embarrassing to go out in public and see somewhere wearing the exact same outfit as you. You basically have to take a picture together to commemorate the moment.

Watching You Do The Dishes

You spent days procrastinating doing the dishes that were left in the kitchen sink and now that you’ve finally got around to doing them, the sink is looking back up at you.
