like a needle in a hay field

the effectiveness of the camouflage that butterflies use is not always obvious when they are on the wing and showing their brighter sides. It is almost impossible to see the meadow brown in the top picture even if you know where it is, and it is only just visible at much closer range.

Many thanks. Is that the equivalent of the 'large print version'? My excuse is that I was not looking for something from that angle.
