    Default Got Camo......??? How about good eyes.......???

    Sometime back I asked about animals that have good camo.

    I had a hard time with the wolf. Not too much trouble with the rest. Nothing really beats mother nature's camo tho. Great photos!

    It looks like an axis deer to me. Saw lots of them in Texas- wide large rack and spots- beautiful animals.

    Those are great. That impala is like a ghost. That leopard would have bitten my face off.

    Didn't see the spots until you mentioned it, just the brow tine and the face that looks like and elk. But I do believe AKBEE is right, an axis deer. So I guess it is a "deer" after all........lol.

    The wolf was the hardest for me to find, But I was most impressed with the Owl's Camo.

    For years I have known of hunters that had the ability to see, hear or walk up on a animal that no other person knew was there. In trying to become a better hunter I have spent years trying to learn how they were able to do it. What I have found is it a combination being born with one or more special gifts like super hearing, or eye site. If you do not have a gifts you too can learn how to find animals that no body knows are there if you have the right attitude. Believe it of not.

    Reminds me of learning to read x-rays! Some things stand out right away and some are much harder to notice. When I was learning, I would ask a radiologist or surgeon to go over them with me and it was easy to find what they saw once it was pointed out! LOL. Experience and repetition sure help! (like looking for the eye of a cottontail in the South Texas brush)

    Interesting that different people have trouble fining different things. Maybe it has something to do with whatever screen you're looking at. I was using a phone and the giraffe was pretty obvious. The fawn and adder, not so much.

    The giraffe was the only one that didn't pop right out to me because I was looking to close, expecting something much smaller. The owl and the leopard have the most impressive camo IMHO.

    the only one that took me a while was that parrot/green bird sitting in plain sight on a brach on the left side of the screen. It took quite a while for my eyes to adjust to the green. funny its not hiding but hard to see. i was driving my atv around last summer and parked for a minute when a duck flew out from about two feet from me. it was really low tundra with nowhere to hide (apparently not) and i never saw it until i almost died from a heart attack. pretty cool how they do that.

    That's why my nickname for ptarmigan is "heart attack birds". That instinct to wait until the last possible second to flyaway doesn't work out so good when it's a snow machine approaching at 40mph. That had to have been the scariest and funniest trail experience in my life.
