CAN YOU SPOT IT? Leopard’s Crazy INSANE Camouflage Makes it Nearly Impossible to Find

Screen Shot 2016-05-10 at 9.35.44 AMIf you were standing 20 yards away from this cat, you still would have a hard time spotting it. Crazy!

At first glance this looks like a fairly ordinary photograph of a rocky hillside but take a closer look and you will find there is more to it than meets the eye.

Hiding within the picture is one of nature’s masters of disguise – a leopard, whose spots give it a perfect camouflage.

The clever picture was taken by photographer Morkel Erasmus who said it had taken him seven years to capture this image.

Mr Erasmus took the pictures in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, on the border of South Africa and Botswana.

He said: ‘I was motivated by my strong desire to photograph the elusive leopards as ever since visiting the Kalahari for the first time back in 2009.

‘I had a strong urge to see and photograph leopards living in this harsh environment.

‘You see people posting trip reports on forums or sightings photos on social media and it’s just leopards left, right and centre, but not for me.

‘It took me eight trips in six years to even see my first leopard.
