Vanishing Act By Art Wolfe
An amazing series by Art Wolfe that were taken as part of his [Vanishing Act] in which the Seattle-based photographer shows the talent of animals in disguising themselves from predators. [This collection has been a long time in the making. Finding and filming animals on location is an exhilarating and painstaking process. I’m still adding to the project even now]. Have fun spotting the hidden animals.
