Two birds have created a beautiful optical illusion by sitting perfectly underneath one another on a branch.
Wildlife photographer Tara Kumar captured stunning images of the birds in his hometown of Bangalore, India, two months ago.
The birds rested in contrast on the branch, which is plastered with many berry clusters.
The bird appears to be looking at its reflection before stopping for a photo, but it’s in fact another identical bird caught in the shot.
Tarun, a project leader for business services, said: “The two birds were trying to get the berries, and they were pushing each other away.
“The one bird starts to down from its place so that it can have some berries, and the other is there watching every move.”
“It looked like the bird was looking into a reflection, so I took the shot, and it came out well; the photos made everything look perfect.
