About the Image(s)

I have been making an Essay of catching butterflies in Trinidad and found myself doodling wondering what to do for this month when I discovered I had covered a picture of my mother in the jungle with us with various creatures I had photographed over the years. A bit of fun this. There are 9 creatures of various types. Good thing she did not know they were there! At the end I put the collapsed image into my favourite Reactor Filter. See how many you can find.

PS.... Spoiler alert!!! Here are the nine creatures that are in the image: Iguana, Venezuelan Locust, scorpion, tarantula, aardvark, harlequin beetle, caterpillar, Lycinidae butterfly, zebra butterfly

Yes it is certainly a bit of fun - a well constructed composite.   Posted: 10/02/2019 04:22:45

Very Interesting! You made the whole scene believable! I think I found nine -- sure of eight but the last one is iffy.   Posted: 10/02/2019 17:21:16

Excellent composite. Very interesting! I cant find 9 and also didn't find Waldo.
I am distracted by the blown out areas though.   Posted: 10/02/2019 19:07:39

Great composited rendition. And a great way to revisit images from the past. If possible, I would tone down Mom's dress a bit.
I did find all 9 of the creatures.... even that elusive scorpion in the lower right. (I guess that should qualify as another spoiler alert!).   Posted: 10/03/2019 08:17:05

This reminds me of those phone app digital games where you have to find things in scenes. very clever idea and you must have taken loads of time to do it. Ive found the 9 by the way! I would like to see "Mum" masked without the treatment to make the image look more believable overall   Posted: 10/03/2019 08:47:59

Agree I should have toned down Mom;s dress but got carried away!   Posted: 10/03/2019 10:04:11
