I thought the peacock photo was interesting.

Years back, while on Mt. Elbert, I took a photo of a ptarmigan on mixed rock/snow. To this day, I can not find that bird in the photo.

WOW.

Took me quite a while to find the peacock, but I did. For some reason I kept thinking I was seeing a snake on the tree.

The housecat is very cool.

I spotted the peacock pretty quickly after my eyes stopped processing the fencing on the tree as a large snake.

:D

The cat was cool.  Took a long time, then I saw the paws--and the whole picture slowly came into focus, almost like a fade-in.

The house cat took me the longest. Oddly enough, I picked out its paws right off the bat but couldn't find the rest of it.

I think it's also pretty interesting to see variation in who is able to identify certain animals. I had a helluva time with the peacock, but found the cat instantaneously.

Wonder if it's color perception, or something else?

Interesting question, Eastie.  I had no trouble with the peacock (though I did enlarge the picture a little).  The cat, as noted, was tough.  But once I saw it, I couldn't miss it.

Just the opposite for me.  I spotted the peacock right away -- but had a hellava time with the cat.

For me, color has to do with it.  Without giving away too much... that was why I spotted the peacock so easily.

Same here. Maybe "east coast" vs "west coast".

I found every one of them right away. I usually have a hard time with these but they all kinda fell into focus quick this time. Took the fun out of it.   :D
