A Neat Illusion

I found this neat optical illusion.

If your eyes follow the movement of the rotating pink dot, you will only see one color, pink. If you stare at the black + in the center, the moving dot turns to green. Now, concentrate on the black + in the center of the picture. After a short period of time, all the pink dots will slowly disappear, and you will only see a green dot rotating if you're lucky! It's amazing how our brain works. There really is no green dot, and the pink ones really don't disappear. This should be proof enough, we don't always see what we think we see.

Smaller version: (neat avatar?)

When the dots disappear it isn't because they are animated to disappear.

The illusion is that the pink dots (all of them) disappear and that a green dot appears.

There is no green dot in the individual frames.

I forgot to mention that I got it from this site:

I still like this one.... one of the cooler optical illusions I have seen.
