I would love to know what is up with the picture on page 16 & 17 of the photography issue??? I’m a librarian at an elementary school and I have already had a few kids catch this – how do I explain to them what is going on with this big horn sheep?
Hi Janel, Thanks so much for your comment. I’m glad you and your students enjoyed the magazine. The photo in which you are referring is simply a ewe (female) bighorn sheep that is standing in front of a ram (male) bighorn sheep. The angle is just perfect to create an optical illusion of what appears to be a “four-eyed” sheep. I hope this clears things up a bit!
Thank you, it does!! Amazing shot and what an illusion! We enjoy and appreciate this magazine very much!
