Armed forces around the world prefer to wear ‘camo’ or ‘camouflaged’ clothes for the purposes of being able to better blend into natural surroundings. I’m not sure how well army camo gear works but various animals around the world have natural camouflage that allows them to blend in with their environment and protect themselves from predators or hide in plain sight waiting for prey.
The following are photos by Art Wolfe, as part of his ‘Vanishing Act’ project which he started way back in 1989 and continues today. These photos show animals that are hidden in plain sight, due to natural camouflage or otherwise. See if you can spot the animals in all the photos — there is one in each. Check it out:
Did you spot them all? If you did, name all the animals in the comments below!
Anyone that likes the above work can purchase any of Art Wolfe’s dozens books that he has published so far.
