1. Disappearing Marble Cat
Starting with a strong contender for the hardest to spot, this cat blends perfectly in with the marble floor it's walking on. We're unsure whether the owner had the cat or the marble floor first, but whichever one came second certainly created a problem in the household.
The biggest issue was trying not to step on the cat when it was walking on this surface. It doesn't seem like marble existed this way in nature, so the cat's perfect camouflage must have been a coincidence. It definitely makes for a good Reddit post, though.
2. Two Cats Or A Cat With Its Shadow?
This person has a black and a white cat which somehow look like they are actually the same cat, but one is just the shadow of the other one. It's incredible that the cats ended up looking so identical, but again, just a coincidence.
If it were on purpose, this would have been the greatest party trick. It would frighten to walk into a room and find the cats standing in this perfectly aligned formation. It would be even more problematic if someone actually did think that the black cat was the shadow and tried to sit on it.
3. Owl Retreats Back Into The Woodwork
This picture is one of those unbelievable moments where nature seems too good to be real. The way this owl's face blends into the wood behind him makes it seem as though the owl and the tree are one. As if they are about to offer you some kind of mystical fortune-telling advice.
In reality, it's actually a clever technique that the owl has learned to make to keep himself safe from predators. We mean, it's either that or this owl has become fossilized or stuck within the tree, and his look is really just a cry for help. Probably not, though.
4. Randomly Found A Bush That Matched His Shirt Pattern
It's always fun to find a funky shirt to wear for an evening out, or even better, a 'holiday shirt' for letting loose abroad. This rose shirt certainly fit the part, and the man wearing it couldn't believe his luck when he found a rose bush that helped him to camouflage perfectly.
We can only imagine the laughs encountered when the man and his gang realized how much he blended into the surroundings, but the picture says it all. If it weren't for his head giving him away, we probably wouldn't have been able to spot him altogether.
5. Kitten Of The Void
The simple act of this black cat sitting on top of a black chair somehow turns it into something deep and metaphysical. Before its eyes opened, there's only black nothingness, a black hole, the void, emptiness. Then, something wild happened.
Once the cat opened its eyes, boom, it's as if suddenly a whole universe springs into motion. The emptiness suddenly becomes understandable; someone is contacting us from the inside. And that someone is void cat.
6. At Least She Is Immune To Grass Stains
Have you ever felt like you are floating through life? It might be because your bottoms match the ground, and you look like a floating torse wherever you go like this girl. She isn't actually a floating body, but her skirt blends right into the grass.
This picture is terrific, and what we love most about it is how casual both parties in the photo look. It's as if they aren't entirely thrilled that this accidental camouflage has occurred, and we don't understand that.
7. Dad Or Painting?
When you first look at this photo, it actually seems quite touching. It seems as though their dad wasn't available for the holiday photo, so they've positioned themselves in front of a photo of him to make it look as if he's in the picture. However, that's not the case. In actuality, the father in the photo.
In a bizarre turn of events, the father's t-shirt turned out to be exactly the color and pattern to blend in with the photo frame. The combination of that and the camera's quality means that the father seems to be just a memory in the end. We'd have loved to have seen the family's reaction when they realized this was the case.
8. Rocket Dog Aims For The Stars
Okay, so maybe 'camouflage' is a bit of a stretch for this photo, but some optical illusion is happening. Namely, the dog, unfortunately, found itself with a Starbucks cup stuck on top of its nose, and it looks like a rocket ship aiming for the stars.
The white stripe down the dogs' neck is like the rocket smoke in the ship's trail. The dog itself? We don't know who he is, where he is, or what he looks like, which doesn't matter. The important thing is that this dog is aiming for the stars, which gives us the inspiration that we all should too.
9. Sweatshirt On Strike... You Shall Not Find Me
We all know the annoying feeling of when you want to leave the house, and you're in a rush. The problem? There's something you need that you can't find. In this case, a grey sweatshirt was placed unknowingly on a bed sheet that matched the color perfectly.
The poor guy in question spent over half an hour unsuccessfully searching for his sweater before finding it. This tasks the camouflage to the next level, and we've got to hand it to him. At least he found it in the end.
10. Ankles Are So Last Year
Anything that brightens up the morning commute is a blessing because the ride on the subway to work is boring. To this commuter's delight, he realized that there appeared to be an invisible section between the trousers and shoes of the person sitting in front of him.
Yep, that's right. The socks of this man matched the floor perfectly, so it seemed that his ankles disappeared and the shoes were resting on the floor. Who knew that such a boring pair of socks could result in such an incredible spectacle.
11. Not A Broken Chair, Just A Trickster Cat
When the person who took this picture first looked at the chair in front of him, he thought the chair was broken. Instead, a cheeky black cat had sat down (as if it were a human) and gave the illusion that the chair was damaged as it blended so well with the black wall.
The ability of these black cats to camouflage themselves so well is a little bit worrying to us. What other tricks are these cats getting away with that we're not aware of? Maybe this is the real reason black cats are associated with bad luck.
12. Another Marble Cat Dilemma
Marble floors probably weren't the best idea here. This time the marble isn't white and grey, but rather ginger and black, just like the cat. On the one hand, at least we understand why this fur color is called marble.
On the other hand, if this were your cat, you would have a high chance of stepping on it since it blends in so well. Look at those beautiful eyes, though, almost serpent-like; this whole picture and camouflage situation is unique.
13. How To Avoid Being Spoken To
This man figured out the perfect way to be ignored at a social gathering. Simply dress in a perfect camouflage outfit with all the chairs around you.
The camouflage is actually so good that, at first glance, it seems as though the other chairs are people in the same clothing. We can only imagine what kind of event that would have been for, though.
14. Where Does The Coffee End And The Mug Begin?
Isn't it all of our dream to have a mug of coffee in the morning that never ends? Well, thanks to this unexpected optical illusion, for this one lucky person, this seemed (even if just for a moment) to be true.
The shade of coffee and milk blended perfectly with the outside of the mug, so sips were taken carefully. But what a beautiful photo it ended up making.
15. Hotel Scarf Chic
Would you be embarrassed if your scarf ended up matching perfectly with the standard carpeting on a hotel floor? It is quite embarrassing, but it creates the ideal opportunity for a hilarious photo if you look at the funny side of it. Luckily, this was the view of this lady.
Laying down on the floor, she spread out her scarf over her face, and the headless illusion was created. Top marks for the photo opportunity and execution, and we'll give it to her; the scarf probably looks great when it's not in this setting.
16. Where's Waldo: Dog Edition
Oh, the horror to be born in the wrong body. This dog decided that life looked much more fun as a bird and used his white fur to his advantage. Diving in with the rest of the chickens, his white fur camouflaged perfectly with the rest of the gang.
It definitely looks like the whole crew is pretty warm cuddled in together. The only fright would be for the human responsible for the herd of animals, who definitely would not have been expecting to find the dog in this position.
17. Pinky Finger
When you first look at this photo, it seems like something terrible happened to this guy's finger. Then you look closer, and something actually seems quite disgusting; Depending on your appreciation of rats.
Instead of his middle finger, this guy has a tiny rat or mouse. The size and dimension of this creature new to the world ended up making it look like it could blend in with his hand in a kind of weird and scary way.
18. Pants Or Floor, You Decide
Imagine the shock of looking down at the floor and seeing that your legs suddenly disappeared. If you weren't expecting it, this would be enough to give you the shock of your life. Well, this set of pants ended up having this exact effect.
The fluffy-looking pants blended perfectly with the stone floors underneath. Don't panic if it took you a few minutes to figure out where the pants end and the floor began.
19. Tortilla Or Tabletop
Imagine the distress of the hungry person when after putting their tortilla down on the counter, they turned to get the fillings and couldn't find the tortilla when they looked back.
Weirdly the tortilla blended so perfectly with the tabletop underneath that an optical illusion occurred. Hopefully, the issue was resolved quickly because we know how hangry we'd get if this situation happened to us.
One of the best things about having a cat as a pet is how fluffy they are, that is, if they let you hug them. The next best thing? A fluffy blanket. The ideal combination? A fluffy cat and blanket combination.
Even better? The fact that this fluffy cat and blanket combination actually is the same color. The joy where the blanket fluff ends and cat fluff begins are somewhat blurred, making it all the more beautiful in our eyes.
21. The Incredible Tie-Dye Crew
You know the saying: those who tie-dye together, stay together. Well, it's not exactly a well-known saying, but perhaps it should be. This guy found his pack when he ended up walking behind a family wearing the same pattern t-shirt as him.
You can't go wrong with some tie-dye, but after you end up walking behind a big group of people all wearing the same print as you, it seems like you have no choice but to go with them. He has been reunited with his real family now, so he must follow them back to the tie-dye land where they all belong.
22. There's A Cell Phone In The Picture
Not that we're trying to make you angry here, but if you can spot this cell phone, then fantastic job to you because it's challenging. That's right; there is a cell phone in this pho. Can you find it?
Aside from it being a great optical illusion, this must be absolutely annoying as hell to the person whose cell phone it actually is. Losing your phone is frustrating enough without your phone being the same pattern as the carpet.
23. Hello, I'm Your Couch
When you show up to your brother's apartment, thinking your outfit is cute until you realize it perfectly matches his couch and pillow. She must have gotten made fun of for this mishap.
It's just the rather humiliating factor that the sofa got there before you. Like, if the home furniture department had the idea before you did, maybe you need to take a second to look again at your fashion choices.
24. Chair Stole My Style
In this continuation of inanimate objects being sharper than living humans with functioning brains, we have a chair that blended in with a man. Admittedly, the pattern isn't revolutionary or ground-breaking.
One would hope no one sat on the chair and didn't notice the guy because he blended in. What's even funnier is that the photo was taken by someone sitting behind him, so maybe the guy didn't even realize, and perhaps until this day, he doesn't know that this photo exists.
25. Dangerous Sandal-Escalator Combination
Escalators can be dangerous things; if you don't jump off in time, you could get your toes caught, which is not something any of us want. So, what about making life more difficult for ourselves, to make things a little more interesting? Maybe not the best idea.
These sandals, already a dangerous shoe type due to the exposed toes, ended up blending in perfectly with the escalator underneath. Like, even down to the distance between the stripes. A recipe for disaster, in our opinion.
26. No Need For Snowmen With This Dog
A polaroid photo is a great way to save a moment in time. It is a vintage way to capture an image, then has it immediately ready to be stuck on the wall. Imagine the shock when these people took a photo of their fluffy white dog, but then the dog was gone when the picture came out.
Instead of a dog, a pair of eyes and nose were peering out from the whiteness, maybe a cry for help. Although the dog's beauty wasn't captured, the photo did end up being quite iconic as a camouflage photo in its own right.
27. A True Seaman
The sea is one of nature's most incredible beauties, wonders, and miracles. So how amazing would it be to blend in? This one man doesn't have to wonder, as he experienced it.
Little did he know, when he got dressed that morning, that he would become a true man of the sea, blending in perfectly with the ocean blue waters behind him. This photo is amazing, and the man should feel very proud of himself, even if the look on his face doesn't quite give that same impression.
28. Look Before Eating
A bit of extra protein in your sandwich surely can't hurt, but it would definitely be good to be aware of the protein you are about to eat. Luckily the camouflage in this photo isn't so hard to spot. But it is kind of worrying.
Yes, that's right, a little green frog is sitting in amongst the lettuce. Frogs are known for their ability to camouflage- it's one of their cool functions. However, usually, it's among grass or seaweed, not in a cheese and lettuce sandwich. Best to look carefully before taking a bite.
29. When The Stars Align
Getting beautifully dressed up for your birthday is a must. We need to look our best on the day when we get celebrated. Stars and moon prints? Perfect. The cherry on top? A present that matches.
Sometimes we have those moments in life where everything seems to come together ideally, and the stars (excuse the pun) align. This girl got to experience just that, with a photo that she'll carry with her forever.
30. Tissue Box Or Imagination
Now, we don't know who had the idea of making a tissue box that's also a mirror. We also don't really know why someone had this idea. Either way, it happened. The result? Accidental camouflage.
The mirroring effect gives the impression that the tissues are simply popping out of thin air. Slightly disconcerting, yes. But ultimately, it remains helpful, so we can't be too annoyed about it.
31. Glasses Or Wires
The poor guy who dropped his glasses didn't know that such a small, clumsy act would have such an annoying result. What should have just been an easy pick-up operation was much more than that.
Yes, the tangle of wires, cables, and glasses all merged into one. The real kicker? The fact that without his glasses on, it would have made it way harder to find his glasses, even without all the accidental camouflage mess. We hate to laugh, but it is quite funny.
32. Cowboy Dog In Training
Well, if a dog is going to work with cowboys, it's certainly got to make sure it blends in well. This dog has completed that job very successfully.
Since both furs are real animal furs, it's not that difficult to see why they match so perfectly, but it's pretty funny to look at when you spot the dog's goofy face.
33. Enjoying The Last Mountain Of Snow
What's even better than a snowman? That's right- a snowdog. This white Husky sits on top of this pile of snow as if he owns it, and who's to say he doesn't?
If it weren't for the dark features on his face, it would be hard to spot the dog at all. We are then faced with the philosophical question; where does the snow end, and where does the dog begin?
34. Warning: This Avocado Will Bite
Avocados are incredible, in our opinion. Healthy and delicious, maybe this bird thinks so too? The way he's sitting in the bowl of the green fruits might just suggest that.
The expression on the bird's face, though? It tells you if you try and pick him up, things might not go as pleasantly as you'd expected. This is real-life Angry Birds, and we don't want to mess with that!
35. Creamy Invisible Cat
So we know that black cats are meant to be bad luck, but it seems that in this case, it's the white ones that are carrying some magic with them. This seems like the better option for a witch to go with: a disappearing cat. Yes, that's right.
This cat was spotted in the beautiful holiday location of Greece, and if the plants weren't enough to distract you already, you might be able to spot the cat. The absolute perfect natural camouflage.
36. Perfectly Aligned Lines
Students in class need anything to brighten up the way they spend their time, and we're sure that noticing this accidental camouflage definitely did that.
The way the stripes align is absolutely perfect, and the fact that the girl has no idea makes it all the more incredible. If it wasn't for the green lid of the cup, we honestly might not have known it was there.
37. Electronics Overload
The thing with cool electronics is that when one thing works, all the other companies make their products look the same. This can cause problems.
The way this remote has fallen makes it seem as though it's part of the charging station. It kind of looks like the remote doesn't want to be found if you ask us.
38. Too Much Leather
This guy lost his wallet for three days before his wife ended up eventually finding it. How come? Too much leather. The blend of the wallet fits perfectly with the blend of the couch.
Pretty funny story, but there's also an important lesson to learn for us all here. When considering buying a kind of couch, maybe choose a different material from your valuable possessions.
39. Magical Vanishing Pan
This accidental camouflage looks like something straight out of a magician's trick book. Find the pan? But don't be mad if you can't.
The way it blends into the surface makes it seem as though the pan is actually a living creature from nature, trying to hide from the humans. Well, we do burn pans on very high heat, so maybe this is true!
40. Her Skirt Blends Too Well
Have you ever had that nightmare where you look down and realize you're not wearing any pants? It actually happened for this woman. Well, not really, but the photo sure makes it look like it.
The way her skirt blends into the floor at the airport makes it seem as though she's just a hovering body. It looks as though she's blissfully unaware of it, though. Maybe best to keep it that way.
