A photo of a bed with a part of the duvet circled in red has been confusing the Internet - with many not realising that the picture is really an optical illusion.

Within the red ring there's a section of a white duvet covered in a black floral pattern, as well as part of the carpet. 

However, people who have spotted the image - which has been shared on Reddit - are struggling to work out what the circle signifies.

The image was posted by Imgur user Idon'tevenknowwhat'sgoingon yesterday, and has so far received more than 63,500 views and more than 80 comments.

People have been left baffled as they have been searching for something significant inside the red ring - not realising that the red ring is actually a hula hoop propped against the bed.  

One user commented: 'Okay I just realized it was a hullahoop…'

Another joked: 'Hah, not today, red hula hoop, not today!' 

Optical illusions are popular online. At first glance the below picture looks like a regular selfie of a woman striking a seductive pose on her bed.

However, if you look closer you will see that something is not quite right with the black and white image.

The shot has been driving the web to distraction ever since it went viral, with puzzlers unable to figure out the oddity.

The image has recently resurfaced on Facebook after it first originated in 2003, when it was posted by Deviantart user Missmiserystock. It was titled 'Look-carefully'. 

At closer inspection it is revealed that the woman actually has six fingers instead of five.

The subtle abnormality is likely to be a clever trick of Photoshop, designed to confuse.

One internet user, Bogina, wrote: 'Hahaha thats insane it took me a while to catch it good job!' [sic] 

But are your eyes sharp enough to solve this brain teaser driving the web crazy?

It is just the latest in a series of brain teasing images baffling the internet.

An image of a floral carpet, uploaded by Jeya May Cruz from Pasig, the Philippines, was shared nearly 16,000 times and reached 120,000 reactions.

Why? Because the photograph contains a camouflaged mobile phone that is devilishly hard to spot.  

If you are struggling, the phone has a floral pattern which does not quite match the carpet. 

Confused? The handheld device lies just beside the right side table leg at the top of the photo

It may seem a simple find, but it has left thousands bewildered.

Jeya captioned her image: 'Since I can't sleep, let's play a game. Look for the cellphone.'

She works as a sales representative at Dell, and studied Banking and Finance at Far Eastern University. 

Sometimes the easiest-sounding brain teasers are the most difficult ones. And another puzzle to recently sweep the web certainly plays by those rules.

The iPad is well-camouflaged because it's the same colour as the seat, with similar markings.
