Gerald, your comment was probably meant to be denigrating, but
it is close to the truth.

When you look in the mirror, chances are you recognize your face
instead of a shape with all those bumps we know as facial
features. You do this because you have a cognitive model about
the physics of the situation. Apparently most animals are
thought to not recognize themselves in such a reflection, and it
is assumed that they don't have the cognitive ability to do so.
I've not heard any one say they are deluded. It's just the way
the mind works.

The point is that the world is a Rorschach test. As adults, we
rarely think of it that way because all the perceptual learning
we have undergone hides it from us.  Martin, and probably you,
are strongly committed to the lens flare model and your
interpretation of the image is based on only that model. That
keeps it simple for you, but I've learned that another cognitive
model that you obviously don't have, also fits the data and is
worthy of consideration.
