February 11, 2016 Updated: February 11, 2016

A photo of a girl that’s gone viral on Reddit and Imgur is baffling many. It’s been viewed millions of times, but there’s no clear consensus if the girl is underwater or jumping in the water.

“This girl looks like she’s underwater and jumping into water at the same time,” captioned Imgur user Maskari, without elaborating.

Some joked that the girl is doing some kind of magic trick to bend the water, but others speculated that it’s a digitally manipulated photo:

One person asked: “The picture is taken upside down in water right?”

Another said: “Stop confusing me.”

“What is really happening here,” said another.

And another commented: ” She’s a water bender. Magic.”

Wrote one: “Her hair is dry. She is just jumping in a shallow pool and little droplets have flown around her looking like air bubbles.”

While another said: “THEN HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN THE BUBBLES AROUND HER FACE, HUH, HUUUHHHHH!?”

However, it appears the girl is crouching down in a shallow pool as she lands following a jump, resulting in a splash. The “bubbles” around her face are actually droplets of water that resulted from the splash.

Also, her hair is dry and tied up in a ponytail, meaning that she isn’t in the water.

“Her hair is dry,” one wrote. “She is just jumping in a shallow pool and little droplets have flown around her looking like air bubbles.”

The photo has been viewed more a few million times.
