The Phalarope bird optical illusion

The Phalarope bird optical illusion
It’s a… bird?

From National Geographic magazine:

"A trick of light seems to give an extra pair of feet to this phalarope bird, seen from below the water."

The photo was taken by Bates Littlehales, a staff photographer for the National Geographic Society for 37 years, who is now a nature photographer.
