    Found it! I wonder if the mountain lions actually know how well they are camouflaged?

    That is an awesome picture. I couldn't see it at first, but I got distracted and when I looked again, I saw it right away.

    Beautiful beast that is...

    Thanks for the photo!

    Notice how they are all looking in the same exact manner (body posture), none have a mouth open, they all look exactly the same?

    :)

    Yeah... I figured it out after revisiting the origional.


    I took a jet boat trip from Lewiston, ID up the snake river to Hells Canyon Dam. It's amazing how animals are camo'd in their natural environment. My wife was spotting rams that I couldn't see until sitting down later and studying the photos.

    It makes me wonder how close I've walked to animals and not known about it

    Once I spotted the lion in Vart's original it was easy to find the other seven. Good PS work, mhambi.

    Now, can anyone see the Canyon Wren in the picture?

    There was a news story here last year about a mountain lion sitting about 30' up in a tree next to a very popular hiking trail. Someone finally spotted him about 2pm, but they figure he had been there for quite a while, just watching the snacks go by...
