Have you ever wondered how well you would fare if you found yourself lost in the wild, without any of the benefits of modern civilization? As smart as we humans may think we are, many of us would probably be surprised to discover exactly how crafty Mother Nature can really be. Here we’ve compiled a Where’s Waldo-like collection featuring “When You See It” style photos of nature at her stealthiest.
Think you’d be able to spot a cheetah staring you down from a few feet away? Or that you could disguise yourself more ingeniously than a common frog? Come on in and find out as you play Where’s Waldo: Nature Edition.
Below you’ll see a group of seemingly unassuming photos, in which we dare you to try and spot nature’s trickery at its finest. After this tough list, you'll think finding Waldo in those old kids' books is super easy! Many of the pictures feature animals showing off exactly how incredible their natural camouflage really is. Others, however, feature some of nature’s coolest optical illusions, which will make you swear you can see faces in mountains or wise old wizards who seem to have grown right out of the bark of a tree.So put your stealth to the test! Don’t worry if you can’t find Waldo (aka the hidden image) on your own in all of the following photos. We’ve included directions to help you find whatever is hidden in each, just in case you need to peak. That said, get ready for a mind blowing trip into the wilds of nature as you match wits with our Where’s Waldo: Nature Edition pictures!
This Lone Owl
When You See It: You'll realize this owl is not alone at all, but is sitting behind one of her babies. His face almost appears to come out of her stomach due to their impressively similar color tones.
These Unassuming Leaves
When You See It: You'll find that you're actually looking at not one, not two, but three master spy toads. If you have trouble seeing them, look at the light tan leaf in the center of the right hand side of the picture - you'll see the top toad's toes covering it. Once you spot him, the other two beneath him are easier to make out.
This Ordinary Autumn Day
When you see it: You'll realize there's a wolf among the trees, enjoying the crisp crunchy leaves of fall. Look directly at the center of the picture and start to move your eyes slowly to the left and you'll see him peeking out from behind a tree.
Just Another Day in the Jungle
When you see it: You'll find a feathery little master of disguise perched among the leaves. If you look closely at the leafy vine in front of the last tree trunk to the left, you'll see that one of its leaves is actually a parrot.
