Can you spot the 'invisible animal'?

Posted on 01/19/2013 6:39:46 AM PST by navysealdad

Whether they are hunters or the hunted, these cunning animals are all masters of disguise who can fool even the most beady-eyed passer by into believing they are not there.

Ah. All those killers wearing beards and niqabs, passing freely among the sheep.

Being a hard core predator and hunter myself I had no trouble spotting my prey.

Great photos! I have seen animals seem to appear like magic right before your eyes. Two that I can remember vividly, a mule deer in a brush thicket in New Mexico and a rattle snake in south Texas. One minute you are seeing the leaves or the ground and the next minute you are seeing something else.

Two-thirds of the way down..."Water good place to hide: A Common Snipe, well hidden in the shoreline vegetation of a Minnesota stream"

Snipe hunting? Sure...think you can fool me?

I grew up running the woods and can almost always spot anything ‘not normal’.

It drives hubby crazy.

I’ll spend 15 minutes trying to get him to see some animal he gets increasingly mad, yelling “WHERE?!?”.

“Right -there-!”

Even worse are dark roads when I spot a glimpse of something a hundred feet off the road and squeal “DEER!” which makes him slam on the brakes.

LOL

Protective coloration and markings are one thing, but that owl looked like it was growing out of the tree like those carved faces the earthy types stick on their trees, lol.

We have a couple of catz that can turn invisibo all the time. One’s a tiger and other’s a calico. You can look right at the couch and not see tiem among the pillows. It’s eerie.

I had a friend that went to Africa.
He said giraffes were the most difficult to spot, excellent camouflage.

I thought the owl was *the* best.

Remember the X-Files episode "Detour"?

The owl should've been an extra in that...:D

.the deer was the hardest!
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
I had ‘trouble’ with the first wolf BUT I did think I saw a lizard or something at the base of the tree...

Funny though if you have trouble ‘finding’ something, if you look away and look back (at least for me) I seemed to focus on the correct image...so wondering if the brain ‘spots’ it and when you go back, singles it out.

Some fantastic pictures though...

Would sure be ‘sad’ to find they were photoshopped??? <: <:

What a great find! I'll be sending this around to a few friends. But here's what occurred to me:

After you've gone through these, and found the creatures from their background, give your brain five or ten minutes to rest. Then try it again from the beginning.

I think you'll find that the animals start to pop right out, once your eyes have learned to spot the irregularities.

Now -- thinking ahead -- Would you make a good hunter? Would you be a combat survivor? A point-walker for your squad?

The deer was easy. I spotted the legs immediately (but I’m also a deer hunter).

Good one!

In the wildlife pictures, it's always the eyes.

The “extra protein” in that bag appears to be both “fresco” and “lavado,” too. So it’s not false advertising. ;-)

I quickly spotted all of the animals except for this one.

I still can't find the snipe.

That one was hard. At first I thought he was playing a joke on us (a “snipe hunt”).

But it is there. Lower left quadrant, at the base of the grass and the top of the snow - about a foot above the water. Head black with a white stripe.

Hunting grouse in Minnesota as a kid, once in a while a snipe migration would be coming through. They are REALLY hard to hit, and not much meat (about the size of a robin).

You’re welcome. Of course then you post that photo (#44) with the “SEALS” in it. I think I MIGHT see something to shoot at if I was the enemy. More than likely though I would be wishing I had brought along a Gatling gun and 20 of my buddies with the same. (Of course that would assume I would even know to look in that general direction). That is pretty amazing.

I've been spotting "impossible to see" animals since I'm a young child. My dad used to marvel how I could spot a bunny in the woods on the side of the road while we were speeding down the highway. Here's your snipe:

That won't work 21twelve. You gotta nuke 'em from space. That's the only way to be sure!
