I always enjoyed seeing photos in nature magazines of the way different animals were naturally camouflaged in their surroundings. More often than not, they were pictures of different insects. I think it’s somewhat rare to see a bird in this situation. I spotted this dove in the Palm Springs airport sleeping amongst rocks that were almost exactly the same colour as the bird itself. Hundreds of people would have walked by in relatively close proximity; I wonder how many actually saw it.

Wow. That is some great camouflage. It took me a bit to find it in the photo.
I know, he’s hard to spot eh?
