First we had "the dress," then we had "which one is the mom?" and now we've got a new photo that's causing everyone to stop, scratch their heads, and do some serious counting. Swiss photographer Tiziana Vergari entered this photo in an Instagram hashtag contest, but she probably didn't know how much of a stir it would cause.

Taken in a Zara store in Switzerland, the mirrors create an optical illusion that makes it tricky to determine exactly how many girls are real, versus how many are a reflection. The photo has been liked by more than 14,000 people, and thousands of commenters have weighed in, guessing anywhere two to 13 girls. How many do you see? Scroll down for the answer!

Turns out there are only two girls in the photo -- the ones closest to the left -- and the rest are reflections! How crazy is that?
