You have a high IQ if you can spot four apples hidden among the autumn leaves in under 15 seconds | The Sun

If you can spot the apples hidden in the leaves in under 15 seconds then your IQ is higher than most.

The image below has baffled most illusion fanatics as they are left struggling to find the hidden apples.

The image shows small red, yellow and brownish coloured leaves which fill up nearly all the blank space.

All the leaves are deliberately squashed into a busy image designed to trick the eyes.

The natural colours of the leaves add another layer of difficulty as it makes the different shapes hard to identify.

Have you found them yet?

Previously we told how the imagery is more than just find and game – some pictures can actually improve our health.

Psychologists at The University of Glasgow found that staring at an optical illusion can improve eye sight by allowing you to see small print.

And according to ZenBuisness: " These visual puzzles can give you a good mental workout that can, in turn, help you think more efficiently and solve problems more easily."
