    Magic Animal...

    ... This puzzle is amazing.

    This is the frosted glass panel in Al Bear Einstein's bathroom which is magic. If you stare at it, with your eyes slightly unfocussed, an animal will appear....very clever concept.

    Question is what animal appears?

    This one took some doing. You said that if I stare at it with my eyes unfocused, it would suddenly appear. My eyes are normally unfocused, but nothing appeared. I took it to mean it was a Magic Eye type picture. They need a repeating left to right background to work and I didn't see that at first. I put the picture into PhotoPaint and tried upping the Sharpness, Find Edges, Adaptive Unsharp, Trace Contours, all to no avail. I messed with the bit planes and histograms and Embossing. I finally did a Gaussian analysis of the noise and found something. This is what I found. I think I have seen it somewhere around here.

    How long must you stare at the glass before you see an *animal*? All I saw was Jezza!!
