See If You Can Spot The Camouflaged Snipers In These Pictures

At first glance, there's nothing remarkable about this picture. Just some trees, right? Well actually, there's a sniper in hiding in there, waiting patiently for their target.

Do you see it? Right by the centre of the picture, by the log on the ground. No? Here, let Vice point it out for you:

That's a sniper. Really!

We try our best to spot snipers all the time in games, but in real life, spotting them is way harder. They're trained to be practically invisible; it makes sense.

The sniper photographs above, which were originally shared by Vice, come from artist Simon Menner. Menner captured snipers from the German Army as they hid in nests (which are holes, basically). Here are a few more photographs, all of which hide snipers. Can you spot them all? If you want, you can even use Kinja to click on the part of the picture you think hides a sniper, and annotate it for others to see.

I'll give you the answers for the first two. For the others, you'll have to visit Vice to see where the snipers are.

Can you spot the snipers in these photos? [VICE]

    The question is....If you don't know you should be looking for snipers....do you see something wrong at all with the image?

    Damnit, that's the "... And Now for Something Completely Different" version. If you're after the original, that's here:

    They call that first one tree cancer and it is incredibly obvious to any one with even a smidgen of basic training or just plain common sense. In fact snipers have failed their stalking classes for trying to hide at the base of a tree like that.

      I saw it in a few seconds. Have no experience, don't even play FPS's!

      This was the first thing I said to myself. This is what I get for watching military docos randomly...

    It's like playing Where's Wally on an A6 piece of paper!

    Uhh... Maybe if the resolution didn't suck ass.

    needs more doritos

    A couple of them were easy, the others I'm convinced were just a random red circle on a photo. Especially this one.

    That's not fair, where's the bright flashing light in my face?

    I got the first two, but the photos are too close to the Sniper, at a greater distance you wouldn't see them.

    They can be out there all they want. . so long as they can't see me.

    Fake. I dont see a red dot anywhere.

    PLOT TWIST: theres no snipers there. just random red circles

    I saw every single one! :D Surprised myself. A few of them you can see the barrel clearly.
