Riverwalker’s Pics - Masters of Camouflage - Part 2

Sometimes you need to take a closer look to see the creatures in nature. They can quite often be hidden by the leaf of a vine or a few blades of grass and will be virtually invisible. By taking a closer look, sometimes things are a little clearer. Many creatures rely on the fact that you don’t take the time to focus on your surroundings.

Here is a close-up of a baby bunny that was hidden by some blades of grass that were only a few inches tall. This baby bunny was small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and its ears were smaller than the blades of grass it was hiding in to avoid detection. A fairly extreme close-up was required to get a good view of this “itty-bitty” bunny which was hidden in the grass. Viewed from one perspective it was very hard to see but by taking a second look with a different point of view it was easier to discern its presence.

Got a different viewpoint?

Disclaimer: No baby bunnies were harmed in taking these pictures. Lil' RW would have been real upset if someone had messed with his baby bunny.

Staying above the water line!

Such a cute, widdle wabbit!

Good thing it was not a slithering creature.

Picking wildlife out of their camouflage is an acquired skill. I've found that after many years of hunting I've gotten better at noticing the varmints.
