It has been said that the best place to hide something is in plain sight.   Apparently people (and that means us!) don't see much that is staring us in the face, especially if we are not expecting to see it.

So for this week's Thematic Photography we are interpreting the theme HIDDEN.    Camouflage has always followed the line of that people don't see what they are not expecting, so I have tried to take photographs along this line! 

The pond at the bottom of our garden is well hidden anyway........

.........but the frog sitting perfectly still on the stone could easily be mistaken for a leaf.

Four sparrows are fairly easily visible, but they love hiding in the privet hedge.   I can only see them when they move or fly out.   If you look hard you can just see one eye looking at you in the top left hand corner!

There is a bee on these heleniums, its only because his wings are catching the light that he can be seen.

And who knows what treasures might be hidden on this stall at the Flea Market in Leek, Staffordshire?

And lastly, how many tourists would notice the beggar on the left hand side of the old gateway?   (The one on the right in a blue sweater is my husband!)

Do go to the link above to find more hidden items!

Cute froggie, Gilly!

We have one who jumped in the spa. Trying to fish him out because I don't think he can get up the sides. But he's very aware of the attempts, and swims to the bottom each time I try.

No pond in our garden for my frog but I found a flea market too.

Amelia will go in and out 10 times in an hour, as long as she can get someone to open the door for her. She hits it with her foot, btw. She's got big feet!

I love the hiding prowess of that frog!

My desk looks kind of like that flea market stall. Who knows what is hidden in there?

I had to look carefully - everything is well hidden except for your husband!
