Animals are masters of disguise, so if you are a beginner wildlife photographer, you may be missing a lot of creatures around you.

Ways to blend with the surroundings are mostly defined by the habits of the animal and its predators, and the environment where the two live and hunt. Even though most often animals tend to imitate the color or their environment, some can still make it even if they can’t blend it: zebras, for example, have a little chance of finding a place that would match their pattern, but if they stick in herds, predators will perceive them simply as a big unidentified mass of stripes.

Here are 20 amazing animal camouflage examples – test your eyes before you go outside!
