      1. I think so...I looked for the eye and the pokey bits on the mouth area. The eye is near the middle at the bottom right of the "mountain", right? Posted 2 months ago

  3. I'm so used to camouflage meaning blending in with dull colors, that this one comes as a shock. Hiding yourself not by being dull, instead by being overwhelmingly vibrant. And not just in one color, in ALL colors. Stunning. Posted 2 months ago
