Can you spot the 'invisible animal'? Incredible images show nature's disappearing act when predators are near

    These animals are trying their utmost to fool predators by blending into landscapes all over the world
    They were taken by photographer Art Wolfe over a period of 35 years, for his work 'Vanishing Act'

Whether they are hunters or the hunted, these cunning animals are all masters of disguise who can fool even the most beady-eyed passer by into believing they are not there.

Some hide under lily pads, some dissolve into the bark of a tree while others slip seamlessly into the snow, either to hide from a hungry predator or silently stalk an unwitting prey.

But the one thing from which they cannot hide is the all-seeing camera lens of photographer Art Wolfe.

He has spent over 35 years roaming the deserts of Africa, the rainforests of South America, the mountains of the United States and snow plains of Canada to capture wildlife at its most invisible.
