"August Contest - Camouflage "



This months theme, selected by last months winner, slopoki1, is Camouflage.

From Rick, “Show wildlife subject that blends in, or hides, using the environment it's in. No captive subjects.”

Sample shot from Rick


RULES:
--Post up to 7 images but only one image/post
--Include shooting info so we can learn from each other
--Previously posted images are welcome - but not previous contest winners
--When posting please do so by hitting the ‘reply’ link below this top post, not the reply link to another post.
--Include a title in the subject line
--Capture must be shot with a Nikon camera and any lens
--Comments are welcome but NO public critiquing, i.e., how to make it better. This is a contest so PM's are a better way to offer feedback
--WARNING posts that do not meet the spirit of the challenge cannot qualify as finalists, and may or may not be removed by the moderators

I think back with fondness of my Coolpix 995. I almost step on to a Gabon adder in, believe it or not, at Lope in Gabon. The coloring of the snake reminded me of that unbelievable beautiful snake.

In my early birding days (2008), I was making photos of the hard to see juvenile green heron when the black bird flew in. Although our eye is attracted by the black bird, it is the juvenile green heron that is the centerpiece of this photo.

Okay, here are two more photos for the Camo-Theme. The first is the actual "bug" in disguise. The second depicts the "bug" after I spooked her with the lens. In the first image she had already dispatched one of her prey. All I can say is I'm glad these things are not the size of dogs.... Enjoy.

#43. "ptarmigan in autumn, Colorado"
In response to Reply # 0
Sun 01-Sep-13 05:08 AM by scottashley


Ptarmigan are grouse-like birds that live high in the Colorado mountains and in northern latitudes. In summer and autumn their feathers match the rock terrain in which they live, and in winter they turn solid white—except for their black eyes and beaks. Perfect camouflage for their environment! This one's belly and leg feathers have already turned white for the quickly approaching winter snows, and its upper plumage is just beginning to turn.

#44. "Mother marmot and babies"
In response to Reply # 0



Marmots live high in the Colorado mountains where their grayish-brown coats match the rock terrain in which they live. This mother and three of her babies blended very well with the rock outcropping in which they'd made their den.

Ptarmigan are grouse-like birds that live at high altitudes and in northern latitudes. In summer and autumn their feathers match the rock terrain in which they live, and in winter they turn solid white—except for their black eyes and beaks. This one's plumage had a strong reddish tinge to match the quickly changing colors of its Alaskan tundra home, and its belly and legs are turning white to match the soon-coming snows.

In response to Reply # 0



Although bighorn sheep prefer staying in wide-open spaces, they're surprisingly hard to spot because their grayish-brown fur blends so well with their surroundings. This big ram's white rump even blended in with the patchy snow.

In response to Reply # 0
Sun 01-Sep-13 05:10 AM by scottashley


In many trips to Alaska only once have I managed to photograph a lynx—this young male resting up after fruitlessly pursing its main prey, the snowshoe hare. Unfortunately he was well camouflaged in deep brush and very difficult to photograph.
