“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”

Wordless/Wordful Wednesday photos below this test. Scroll down, or CLICK HERE to skip the test.



Instructions: Look at the picture and try to find at least one picture of a dog.

Here are some comments from some people who took this test:

"I couldn't see a dog and I stared at the picture for a good 10 minutes."

"I think it is one of those pictures where you have to stare at certain spot and then everything comes into focus, but it never happened to me. I'll give it another try later."

"I almost didn't find the dogs at all!"

"There is a dog in this picture? Where?"

"This must be a joke; there are no dogs in this picture."

The average reaction time for men appears to be a lot smaller than that for a woman. The following are average times for men and women:

Women: 12.46 minutes
Men: 1.23 seconds

Hint: The dogs appear to be white with black spots.

Good luck and happy hunting. Scroll down to see the picture.









Keep going...









Almost there...









Get ready...









Don't say I didn't warn you...









Here it is...

  14. Too funny! I have to admit I did see the dogs right away - what does that say about me??

    Beautiful, gorgeous rose. I wish we had more.

    The pomegranate plant is just beautiful - I am so glad Bud listens to you!

  15. What a beautiful rose. I haven't seen many of that shade.

  16. Guess Bud is in real good books now. Find out what a woman likes as a gift! can't go wrong.
    The rose is spectacular. My favourite is a 'Peace Rose' pale yellow. Ours don't do too well round here, wrong sort of soil! My sister, on the other hand who lives up north, has wonderful rose bushes.
    The dogs? it took me a while to find them, I think I will go back and just check again.
    Love Granny

  17. Hilarious! The rose is beautiful too!

  18. Pomegranates are awesome! Our neighbor has a pomegranate tree, so we trade guavas for pomegranates and figs for grapes. Works for me. :)

    Love the photo of the rose from your garden, too!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm either getting old or am very perceptive. I saw the dogs at once. Neat picture.
    The rose - I love it. Gorgeous.
    Hope your new pomegranate tree does well. I like to eat them too (fruit not the trees).
    My DVDs - I've made about 30 of them from photos we have. My favorite one is called By the Sea and has all pictures on the beach and on the sea. First picture is of my Mom at the beach when she was about 8 years old with her mother and a sister. Part of the fun of making the DVDs is putting music to it. Wouldn't be very interesting without the music.
    Thanks for asking.
    Have a good day.

  23. Anni,

    I must be getting old. I saw the dogs right away. lol

    The rose is beautiful. Be sure to post a photo when it opens.

    Love that Bud bought you the pomegrante. I love the juice but it is so expensive. Can't wait for it to bear fruit.

    Take care and have a great day.

    Blessings,
    Mary

  33. ROFL I was all set to look for a dog! Hello dear Anni...I'm so sorry for being MIA but so many other things needed my attention and my blogging visits have been nil lately. Today it's raining so it's a perfect day to stay inside and spend it with friends:-)

    That pink rose is so beautiful! My rose bushes are just now starting to sprout leaves so it will be another month or so before any roses are blooming.

    A pomegranate tree, how awesome! We can't grow them around here which is such a shame because I love that fruit!! Best of luck with growing it, hope it gets huge:-)

    I'll now go read all of your other posts I missed!! xoxo
