The Virgin Mary in a Picture from a State Park – Pareidolia

I had no idea there was a word for the perceived image of something familiar where there’s actually no image of that familiar thing. It’s called pareidolia. A few popular examples can be found here. Quite funny and crazy how so many things can look like something else. But before you check those out, take a look at the Virgin Mary holding Jesus as a baby.

It’s especially noticeable if you look at the X, then you’ll really notice her image.

Cypress knees, as these are officially called, are all over the place but this one was pictured at Manatee Springs State Park in Florida. The little white balls are apple snail eggs.

Do you have any examples of pareidolia? Let me know in the comments below and thanks for dropping in…
