Can you spot the finches hiding in these rocky landscape photos? You’ll need eagle eyes to spot them all


Baffling photos of a chaffinch are sending netizens a wave as they struggle to locate the feathered friend amidst a bed of rocks.

Photographer Yolanda Bogert, 42, recently shared a photo of a finch she named George on social media, confusing hundreds of viewers who couldn’t spot him.

After posting the photo to a bird photography Facebook page with the caption ‘spot the finch’, the mother-of-two was inundated with hundreds of comments asking where George the bird was.

The nurse, who currently lives in Darwin, Australia, met George a few days earlier, comically naming him after the “Looney Tunes” line: “I’ll call him George!”

“After taking the picture, he came very close to my foot,” Yolanda said. “He wrestled with a seed head from a clump of grass, then grabbed it and flew off with his bounty.

“George and I have only known each other for a few days, but I’m a friend of the family.”

Facebook users commented that the baffling photo of Yolanda would make a good puzzle.

The Facebook group presents an ironic and comedic twist in that it rewards photographers for underperformance rather than its opposite, excellence.

Yolanda says she is happy to claim credit for her photos that meet these criteria.

“I’m sure George would be thrilled too,” she added. “I’ll keep an eye on George with my camera ready.”
