Find What’s Hidden in These PhotosBy Michelle Stone
We come across so many instances where someone next to us points out a strange thing, but for the life of us, we’re unable to spot the object. Once we do place it, it’s hard not to do a double-take, and chances are we cannot unsee it after! That’s precisely what this list has in store for you.
Mother Nature has this wonderful way of camouflaging its precious beings to protect them from harm. Although plants and animals are geniuses at it, we humans also add to the mystery both by mistake and purpose. Who else thought of grasshoppers and troops in camouflage? Now you know that it doesn’t make this phenomenon any less awe-inspiring! Be it natural or man-made, and we are sure that the photos here will tickle your senses and show things that have gone to the next level in blending with their surroundings! You won’t believe your eyes, but here’s to happy hunting!
Walls of Heaven
This is an instance of extreme camouflage, which evokes a sense of fear more than amusement! Even after staring at the image for a few seconds, the building’s start and end points remain unclear, posing a significant safety hazard.
While the person who posted this image claims that the building color and sky hue coincidentally turned out to be the same, we smell some kind of mischief here. With that said, had there been a few dark clouds or a red sky, we could have called it the motorists’ delight!
1 Or 101 Dalmatians
Whether it is a dog show or just a walk down the street, you can rest assured that your Dalmatian will stand out among the other canines. You could attribute it to the lovely white coat, those adorable black spots, or the films made about these intelligent and lovable canines!
Just when we thought they manage to stand out wherever they go, we came across this picture that proved us wrong. Over here, the Dalmatian goes missing amidst the snow and grass, and if there weren’t a leash, we would have had a hard time spotting it!
And the Next Trick Is…
Now we have seen it all! It is not just animals and buildings that enter the camouflage trap; we humans can also get tangled in it. More often than not, our choice of clothes or bad lighting is what leads to such instances.
Take this picture of a music festival where a guy is relaxing on the grass, and yet he seems to have lost his middle part. Thank the heavens that his shirt wasn’t of the same color as the lawn, or else, the horror would have been of much greater proportions!
Animals in Arms
If you just said that ‘hey, I can see the dog,’ then you probably missed the whole point! At the outset, it seems that the canine merely is enjoying its afternoon siesta before you realize that a cat is taking shelter near its legs.
Their camaraderie might look beautiful on the outside when they are asleep, but they probably fight like cats and dogs when they are awake! On a different note, can we ask the dictionary folks to include the word ‘Catouflage,’ or is it too much to ask?
Moss’ter of Camouflage
This tiny chick was probably being naughty and played around with the moss, or in the worst case, the greens grew on its body! Thanks to this person’s sharp eyes, he found the bird in that pool of moss when it was still alive.
If only we could put the chick’s sorry plight aside for a second and admire nature’s marvelous ways of camouflaging species and other things! In hindsight, it was probably the thick layer of moss that saved the chick’s life from all kinds of predators out there.
Straight Outta HG Wells’ Novel
How often does a person’s article of clothing blend into its surroundings, making it a perfect camouflage? This is just what we saw in this Harry Potter-esque magic trick pulled off by this office-going individual!
If we are to believe the person who posted this photo, the gentleman in question is wearing a pair of transparent socks. But we have a feeling that the floor and the socks bear the design! In case the former theory turns out to be accurate, then we wonder why he chose transparent socks instead of becoming Mr. Invisible altogether!
Blanket Comes To Life
A dog cuddling up in a sheet or a blanket – this is the most adorable sight for a pet owner and for those of us who love staring at cute pictures! It gets even better when the dog’s blanket is super fluffy, soft, and of the same color.
After this little pup jumped on the couch to cozy itself up, it looked as if the blanket got a pair of eyes and a nice big nose. Imagine what would have happened had an unsuspecting person picked up that comforter!
This Man is Not a Social Animal
We all know about certain creatures with the unique ability to mimic their surroundings to keep away from other animals trying to prey on them. Here’s a scenario wherein a human being is trying to escape his family members’ wrath with the help of camouflage clothes!
The man is probably hiding because he forgot about date night, or maybe he didn’t want to play Jenga with his kids. Either way, he will be in trouble when his folks catch him hiding under the checkered sheets! Good luck to you sir, you’ll probably need it!
The Trees Are Watching You
It is one of those pictures that is so obscure that it is actually good! Unlike us human beings, animals can adapt to their surroundings without making a fuss over it. A case in point is this owl, which has managed to own the ecosystem it is a part of!
The stern-looking bird has the exact same colors as the bark of the tree behind it. So just like the pet, the owner will also have to keep a watchful eye, or else the owl may leave the hand and fly away.
Don’t we all love it when we come across a trivial yet unmissable coincidence? This guy wore his lucky clothes and got ready for an important match of snooker, only to find out that he has become the butt of all jokes and people sitting afar are clicking his pictures!
We should commend the man for keeping his cool despite all the commotion about his t-shirt and the paint job on the wall. Wait a minute; maybe it was all a ploy to distract his opponents and take that trophy home!
Having pets is a beautiful thing, and if they can match anything you have, then the better! This guy got himself a fluffy dog that looks exactly like his carpet, and it has to be the cutest thing we have seen today.
Dogs are intelligent creatures, and this little guy knew when to blend in and be literally out of sight for a while. We all need some me time, and where else, apart from the background where no one can see you? The downside to this is, if the owner is not careful, they might step on their favorite pet. We hope this doesn’t happen!
The Chair of Invisibility
Sometimes, things happen out of sheer coincidence, and it can be a tad shocking. This guy went to a conference, and the shirt he wore happened to blend perfectly with the chair he sat on. While we have no idea whether he knew the cushion pattern and decided to match it with his outfit, we bet he must have stood out from the crowd.
Public sitting is usually relatively inconspicuous; unless someone is doing something out of the ordinary, it is easy to blend in, and no one would take notice of your presence. This guy went viral, and maybe he will match other cushions in the future!
Nothing is as satisfying as seeing the perfect camouflage in play. When you first look at the vegetation in the picture, it seems like nothing is happening; all you can see is some leaves and yellow flowers; pretty normal, right?
Taking a closer look, then things get interesting. Hidden in plain sight are the small tree frogs that have blended perfectly with the lush green leaves, and it is easy not to notice them. We have seen a couple of camouflage happening in nature, but this ranks among the top.
When we don our outfits to step out, we usually don’t anticipate that we would blend in somewhere or create some perfect camouflage moment. This lady wore a sweater and pants that match the trees and the snow, respectively, and we must say, this makes for a grand, exciting illusion!
We are glad that she didn’t wear dark-colored pants, or the whole image would have lost its magic. Standing in that position made the illusion more fascinating, and one might think they are looking at half a picture or a magic trick unfolding in front of their eyes.
Adaptability and Survival
All over the world, nature is one of the most potent forces, and it can adapt to whatever changes it may find itself subjected to by humans. Nothing explains the capability of Mother Nature to adjust to new surroundings and situations, like these vines.
While the plants grew to look green, they changed their pigment to match the planks when they got to the purple-colored wall. This is an interesting phenomenon, and while it might be surprising, it is beautiful. Maybe the owner should try painting the wall a different color to see if there will be the same effect.
Cats are excellent pets, and while they might appear to be aloof, they are adorable nonetheless. These fur babies love their space, and for this little guy, his spot was the blanket, and he made it his own by blending in it.
It’s normal for cats to get super comfortable, and in this case, one might find themselves tempted to reach out and pet him. That might not be a great idea, though, as you don’t know where the blanket ends and where the furry cat begins. Better wait until he wakes up!
Sometimes our outfits might turn out to be some great works of art, especially when they blend in with the background of whichever place we may find ourselves headed at the time. This woman happened to have the perfect mix when everything from her top, pants, and shoes matched seamlessly with the background.
We don’t think she had this planned before leaving the house, but we appreciate the beauty this hold. Rarely does a scenario like this happen, and when they do, we are glad they get captured for all of us to see!
Can You See Me?
In what looks like any standard photo of some rocks, it actually is a stunning camouflage image that we have ever seen – Hidden among the rocks is a puma, which we think is waiting around for the prey to make a meal out of for the day.
While it might take a while for you to notice him, once you to, you’ll be left astonished. These feline species are known for their stealth, and he did a great job blending in with the rocks. Quite ingenious but a tad scary too – One certainly needs to be careful around those hills!
Two In One
When this guy walked into the exhibition, we bet he must have been shocked to see the striking resemblance between the jacket he had worn and the gorgeous, expensive piece of art that is behind him. We have no idea what came first, his coat or the artwork, but whatever did, they all look stunning.
Quite a coincidence to see the same pattern of your outfit and a painting, and it is no wonder he had to take a photo for remembrance. Maybe both pieces were done by the same artist, and in that case, this guy is fortunate!
The Ghost Ride
If you wanted proof that invincible cars do exist, then here you go. Yes, we are as shocked as you are when we first saw this image. According to the owner, you need some extreme level wax job done on your car to achieve this camouflage level.
We don’t know how much it cost and how long it took for the job to reach completion, but we must say, this result is incredible. Anyone who comes across this vehicle must think that it is just wheels, making for the perfect Halloween scare.
We are sure that you must have heard that the best things in anyone’s life always come in pairs. Well, it turns out that the person who said it was right because his phrase applies to this picture. Besides, we think the superstition that a black cat brings misfortune in your life is clearly unfounded and provincial.
Just think about it, you have a cat with black fur, and she blends perfectly into the skin of his mate. And he happens to be a gigantic doggo; we believe that in such a situation, all the feared bad luck gets canceled immediately primarily because the scene becomes too adorable!
An Awkward Situation!
Consider yourself invited to a great party, and you wear your favorite shirt, but that ends up exactly matching the carpet at the venue. Well, that would be awkward. It seems that this guy was in the same situation when he realized that his cool red shirt matched the color of the carpet he is walking on.
Interestingly, his brother thought it was funny. So, he ended up taking a picture and shared on social media to make some fun of him. Let us tell you that we would indeed run back home immediately and change our outfit before any friend spotted us looking like this!
Where is the Bunny?
It appears that we would have to post thousands of pictures of a fluffy and adorable animal before you realize that it is better to be careful about the colors you buy. Even though this is a cute photo and most of you would be thinking, “Aww! That’s beautiful”, we wonder how the owner of his bunny manages to find him when he is lying on the blanket with the same colors.
In short, whenever you plan to go shopping in the future, be careful about the stuff you buy, especially the color combination!
Where is the Leg?
The first thing that comes to our mind after seeing this picture is the boy’s missing leg. But after taking a second look, we realize that it’s not the leg that is missing, rather the design of the shorts matches the color of the grass, and they get mixed up.
Well, we are sure that soon after the little kid’s picture went viral on social media, he became the subject of numerous jokes from his peers. And we don’t blame them because what are you supposed to say when your friend’s leg appears to have disappeared?
The Box and The Woman!
Even though the color and the pattern of the box this woman is holding matches her dress, there are still apparent differences between them. Perhaps, the blue and white paint on the woman’s dress is kind of inverted, and it also has more orange boxes on it.
Yet, the similarities are quite shocking, and it is pretty challenging for us to believe that it was merely a coincidence and not something pre-planned. Whatever the truth might be about this picture, there is no doubt this image was refreshing and interesting!
Pebbles or Flowers!
If the first thing came to your mind while observing this image for the first time, you might perhaps be allowed forgiveness for it. Just wait for a minute and analyze the picture carefully; you will soon realize that it is the shoe pattern that matches the pebbles on the parking ground.
Let us go a step further and fetch your binoculars and zoom in on the footwear; you will understand that the shoes’ pattern is not even pebbles. In fact, it has some purple and grey flowers placed over one another. But if looked from a distance, the resemblance is indeed striking!
Can You Find The Phone?
We are sure that if this were your phone, it would have taken you ages to find the missing phone that is right in front of you. Interestingly, the black lines and the look of the cover perfectly blends on the school desk. And if you look closely, you will notice that the camera lens. But what’s surprising is the line up of the black pattern on the phone and the table.
It appears as if someone took an image of the table and made a phone cover out of it. Obviously, we are kidding, as that is not the case!
Merely a Coincidence!
Let us start by giving a thumbs up to the person who took this photo. We have to say that he has got quite an eye and observation skill. Plus, this has to be the best picture of the day because the doggo’s furs match the color of the surfaces they are standing on at the time. If you ask us, this image looks more like an old Chinese symbol.
But we think that if these dogs changed their sides, we would have an original Yin and Yang like a problem in front of us!
We are not sure, but given the bag this guy is wearing and his jacket’s design, he has surely got some links with covert operations stuff. Maybe, he is on a secret mission or something. Whatever the case might be, his goal to blend into the mountain background seems to work correctly.
Even if this guy is a spy, with his attire matching the background, we are sure that his enemies would have a hard time catching this commando. We are hoping that he completes his task and gets a promotion!
Almost everyone agrees that cats are the masters of camouflage. But if the pattern and color of your house floor match that of your pet, then it indeed makes things a little more confusing than they are. It seems that this guy has a ginger kitty, and interestingly, the floor color makes him vanish.
Even though we are sure there is a cat somewhere in this picture, it appears that we would have to look at this picture for a few more minutes before we confirm it! So, what’s the moral? Always be careful with the colors!
A Cut From The Same Cloth?
You wouldn’t believe it if your friend told you that they have a shirt that matches your shower curtain, right? Neither did the shower owner in the picture. Well, until their friend showed up with an attire made from material similar to the curtain.
As far as camo goes, this one takes it. Your friend could hide in plain sight, especially given the similarity of the material design and their outfit, which can be quite confusing. The shower curtain owner probably went shopping for a new one after he gave his matching friend this one. They seemingly belong together!
Half Man, Half Water
This fishing trip was quite rewarding, going by the catch, and the kids seemingly had a wonderful time with their father. When handing over the catch of the day to his son, the father mistakenly, or not, posed for one exciting photo.
The blue of his shorts match the aquatic backdrop, and with his kids hiding both his legs, he looks like the mythical mermaids, only that instead of a fin for his lower body, he has nothing at all! It’s quite a scary thought when you think of half a man, isn’t it?
Have You Seen My Ankles?
It turns out that our eyes get tricked into seeing things that aren’t in existence, as this photo aptly shows. Optical illusions have long been in use in the world of magic, so when we stumble on such a situation in everyday life, it makes for one amusing photo.
The guy in the picture seems to have no ankles since his socks and the carpet he is stepping on make such a matching combo. We’d understand if you thought that his shoes are magically floating, but it turns out that they are not. Just take a closer look!
A Sofa Shirt
This guy’s shirt and the sofa make such a pair, given how the color schemes integrate, and you’d have a hard time figuring out his upper body. He probably had the shirt sewn from the leftover sofa material, or it is one big coincidence; we’ll never know.
We can tell that he was not short of ice breakers if a house party followed in that setting, but we might not encourage you to try this out. Someone might mistakenly sit on you, thinking you’re part of the sofa. You should have that at the back of your mind!
A Fruity Parrot
These two are just about the most adorable duo we have on this list. Look at how cute this avian beauty looks while cuddling the succulent bananas? Either the parrot loves bananas, or the yellow color drew them closer to the fruits. Most likely, the latter.
Could we also give credit to whoever snapped the pic? You can see a notebook behind the bird, and the person was most likely drafting up a shopping list before the parrot started playing with the bananas, and he thought, why not? This right here is the resulting photo.
The Camouflage Show
These three Irish band members had no idea that they were dressed up in the colors of their country’s flag while rocking a crowd, and it’s not until they saw this photo that they found out. You can easily miss the drummer who’s bent over fixing his drums due to the camouflage, but it seems like they electrified the crowd either way.
The good thing about music is that you don’t have to use your eyes, and probably, few noticed the striking color similarity here. Can we now call them the ‘Camouflage Band’?
You can tell a lot about a person by the shoes they wear, as the saying goes, and this fellow here looks like he’s usually the life of the party with his rather colorful shoes. The pair of kicks effortlessly blend in with the carpet, making one perfect camo.
He probably got stepped on a couple of times, but I am sure he expected this with such camouflage. We would not advise you to wear this to a party, though, unless you are ready for others to start tripping over you, literally.
A Bug Among Rocks
Some of you will need a magnifying glass for this one. While we can’t tell what kind of bug that is, it looks like a particular breed of grasshopper.
Well, in the animal kingdom, such camouflage is necessary for survival, and it’s hard for the predator to see this bug as it is for us to spot it in this picture. We highly recommend you to stay away from this kind if you are the type who are scared of flying bugs. You won’t see them until it’s too late!
An Invisible Road Sign?
Well, maybe. But that could also be because you’re looking at it from the wrong side. The back of this road sign effortlessly blends in with the skyline’s blue, making one intriguing camouflage. You might need to take a closer look to make out the square sign at the top of the pole.
From afar, this may pass for a lonely post for those going in the opposite direction, but to the others, it’s probably the speed limit for that particular area. Don’t get too surprised when you get pulled over!
