No, its a perception / optical illusion thingie.

Have a go at:

This is a similar thing - your eye/brain compensates/adapts for the
movement, and when the movement stops the compensation makes stationary
things appear to be moving in the opposite direction.

I used to experience the same thing when dismounting my parents' riding
lawnmower after a long bout of mowing.
