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.

"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.)

Well he wasn't where I would thought he would be, but I did find him this time lol.

Okay, after another look at the previous one (Leif is enjoying the weathered gypsum towers), I found him, and that was a hard one, and I looked in the same spot so many times before lol.

Thanks Dataman, hope you have a good weekend  :cheers:

Crickey! Found him! He is in plain sight but bloody well camouflaged!  I must have looked straight at him a hundred times.

That one was particularly difficult and not where I thought it would be. I was staring right at it when it magically materialized. 

I have started posting the answer on Mondays for those who cannot find it or want to avoid further eye strain.
