The Marmot challenge

Although marmots are easy enough to see when moving, they are difficult to spot when stationary. One of their defense tactics is to stop perfectly still, whereupon they are nearly invisible. I spent many frustrated minutes staring at mountainsides, conviced that there was a marmot to be seen, if only it would move.

So here is today's challenge. Can you spot the marmot in this photograph? He is visible, clear as day, once you have found him. How long will it take you? (It's probably best to click on the image to see a larger version)

There he is, 27 rocks across, 18 down.

You should submit this picture to a puzzle company. This would make an epic jig saw puzzle!

Spotted him / her straight away, but then I have practice having been to teh Alps so often.

There is a different Marmot challenge that is much, much harder - actually,it is called the marmotte but let's not quibble - it involves way too many mountains in the French Alps. Did it once, years ago; never again!
