In the 2013 National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest there's this amazing photo of the Eastern Screech Owl, taken by Graham McGeorge:



The camouflage power of some animals really amazes me, so here are some incredible examples of such masters of disguise.

Some are really hard to spot!

Wow, some of these really are difficult to spot! I haven't found the camouflaged creatures in the last few photos yet. Dammit, now I have to go play Where's Waldo: Insect & Animal Edition because it's driving me nuts.

First off, I'd advise everyone to click the link in the OP. They're not all camouflage pics like the ones in the OP, but there are several extremely beautiful pics on that page.


 
This↓ one took me a minute to find what I thought was a lizard climbing on the tree. lol

Shortly after finding 'the lizard who wasn't there', I found the actual creature, but I'm not gonna give away it's location. I'll just say that it's definitely not the red lizard.




 
That owl looks pissed. I don't think he was very happy about them taking his picture.



 
I also noticed you saved the best for last. At least in my opinion, the last image in the OP is by far the best one of the bunch.

I have stared and stared and I cannot see anything in the two 'woodland' pictures. I am laughing because whatever it is wins the camo prize! That delicate pink seahorse, what a beauty. Good thread, thank you.

What are you talking about? I don't see anything! Theres nothing there. Are these more of those Mars pictures of rocks that look like lizards and skeletons? Oh! Wait a minute. Never Mind. Hurumf!

LMAO Oh my. I finally 'see' what is hidden in those two woodland pictures, thank goodness, it was driving me nuts. As my mother loved to say "If it had been a snake, it would have bit you". The second one had me falling off my chair, how could I have missed that!!!

if your talking about the next to the last one as the leopard.

i think it is a bird. look at the right hand corner, just above the light green fungus/ algae on the rocks, you can see the tail feathers then follow the body up to the left.

ETA my bad i see the leopard now. but not in the picture i was talking about, that is a bird.

This was a black tailed deer outside my apartment when I was in AK. It really thought I couldn't see it and I almost didn't.

Wow! Those are hard to find!

The Leppard would have ate me for sure, and the frog was something too.

What a fun thread, who would have thought.....S&F!

Can't get the rock one at all (second to last). Love the giraffe one! Makes you want to tread lightly and move slow when walking through nature. Great share.

Don't forget about the cephalopods. They're the true masters of deception.





Cool thread.

The one of the shadow person hiding deep inside a coal mine was incredible!! J/k, obviously the one pic didn't display right, at least for me...or IS that what it was??


But seriously, these were awesome, thank you for sharing! I love this stuff! Had chameleons as a kid and i've been awed by nature's camouflaged wonders ever since.

The bottom four blew my mind!


It took me a minute before I saw the leopard. The giraffe was awesome considering it's size.


Thanks 4 sharing.
