Title: Can you spot the penguin?
Post by: Dataman on December 22, 2020, 07:45:08 AM
Nature has been doing this in their Friday briefing this year with the answer each Monday. Hidden in each picture is the same picture of a penguin. Some are easy to find and others incredibly hard. For each picture click on "Can you find the penguin?" for a large pic.

Can you find the penguins?

For those who had trouble finding Leif last week, you are not alone.

Flora Graham, senior editor, Nature Briefing posted today:

"Leif Penguinson hid so effectively on Friday on the shore of the chalk cliffs of Møns Klint, Denmark, that I failed to find our feathered friend in time for yesterday’s e-mail."

The answer was not posted until today.  :rofl:

This week Leif went walkabout down under for a fair dinkum hide.

I am amazed, I think my mind works a bit differently to everyone else hear, that one I found easy, but then when you all have mentioned other ones as easy, I find very hard.

Could be the way my prescription is for my glasses, as I am shortsighted and do have gradual bifocal lenses lol.

Post by: Dataman on March 28, 2021, 01:20:53 AM
I find the whole thing amazing. On the ones I find difficult, I search and search and then when I spot it I wonder how I could have missed it. It just jumps out at me. The brain is an interesting bit of machinery.  :wink

BTW, I sent Flora Graham, the editor of the briefing at Nature, an email last week suggesting Leif be reduced 50% to make it more difficult to find.  I got a very nice non-automated reply which said, among other things, that she would forward the suggestion to Tom Houghton their "penguin wrangler" who puts together the weekly picture. I was surprised, in this day and age, to get an actual response.

I think (just my opinion) the problem is most people look at these on their "stupid" phones with a small screen. On a handheld device it is quite hard to find our mate Leif. On gamers and crunchers big screens, just the opposite. I do enjoy the difficult ones though.

Appears even The Nature Journal makes mistakes.  :shock

"On Friday, Leif Penguinson enjoyed a sojourn on the COVID-free island nation of Nauru.
Unfortunately, I linked to the wrong image: I showed you a trip Leif took last year to the spectacular limestone needles of Tsingy de Bemaraha National Park in Madagascar. Apologies for the mix-up!"

Here's the correct image: (Easier, I think.)

Yes.... I thought I'd seen that rocky outcropping on a David Attenbourough show as being in Madagascar.

I agree, he was easier to find in the new pic  :BigGrin

I actually had to look hard to find Leif in this one :)

Leif is hiding among the sweet-smelling ponderosa pines of Mount Charleston, Nevada. This one kept me occupied for a bit.

Haha I love doing these. Thanks Dataman!
I’m on my iphone to find this one. I’m not sure if that makes it easier on not because you HAVE to zoom in to see anything vs my 27” monitor at home.
It took me a few minutes…. My 7yr old son found Lief in about <10sec lol  :holy-moly

Have a great weekend mate!  :cheers:

Today, Leif Penguinson is cooling off at the Abiskojåkka river in Abisko National Park in Sweden. This was the hardest for me in awhile as there is a slight deviation in how the image is presented.

Leif Penguinson (and chief penguin-wrangler Tom Houghton) are taking some well-deserved time off for the 4th of July holiday, so Leif will be back next Friday.

Back from the holiday Lief is relaxing in Dimosari gorge in Greece.

Leif hides among the rock formations near Cannonville, Utah. Easy one.

Terrific photo too.
