Hidden Pictures


Do you remember “Hidden Pictures” in the puzzle books for kids? The drawings were usually full of squiggly lines and somewhere in the maze of lines were smaller hidden pictures.  The goal was to find them all.

In the photo below, there is only one hidden picture for you to find. It’s my friend Lincoln, the squirrel.  Can you find him?

You may have to click to enlarge the photo to find him. If you can’t find him even after clicking to enlarge the photo, I’ve made it easy for you by adding the cropped photo below, that zeroes in on him.



I’m hiding cones for later snacks,

Someplace behind these wooden stacks.

Some niches in the wood will be

Where future goodies wait for me.

The problem is to finally choose,

And that location not to lose.

So many possibilities,

They challenge my abilities

To know what’s where and how to find

The yummy snacks I’ve left behind.

  5. In the woodpile, in the trees, behind that bush, and on your shoulder while you were taking the picture!

  6. I needed the cropped photo, but I found him! I like that you’ve named him. 🙂 I can’t keep the squirrels out of my potted plants. It seems that in the fall that’s where they buried them, and now, although there’s plenty for them to eat around our oak tree, they are digging up the buried treasure. They make such a mess, but I’ve had to learn to let them be, and just clean up after them!

  7. I did have to take a good look, but I found him! A bit like “Where’s Waldo?” 🙂 Nice to see that he’s through the winter so well. And I have to say that I’m a bit jealous of all your greenery!

  8. I was not able to enlarge the photo so I couldn´t see him. Nice little poem!

    • Did you see him in the cropped picture (the second one)? He’s just at the end of the very top log – the one with the broken piece of branch sticking out. Look on the right of that piece of wood. He’s sitting on the ground there. Glad you like the poem.


  9. Oh boy…and I just got new glasses! Cute poem, Anneli.

  10. This is kind of fitting for me at this point. I recently down loaded an game app where you have to search for items in a picture setting. Sometimes it’s a squirrel. Your Lincoln was harder to find than the one in my game.

  13. Lincoln is a clever squirrel. Could only find him in the cropped photo. Fun poem, Anneli. 🙂

  14. Oh Lincoln, I am embarrassed to admit you are one smart little boy. Too smart for me. I still couldn’t find you. (I am having a vision problem this week though). I know you are cute, though, and Anneli writes very cute poems about you!

  15. That was a fun Hidden Picture game, Anneli, thanks. I found him in the second photo but frankly I was having a hard time seeing anything besides that gorgeous pile of stacked wood. Beautifully cut, freshly done, and neatly stacked.

  17. He was well hidden. I always loved Hidden Pictures. Today children like I Spy, much the same idea.

  19. I am not sure I found him, but maybe. I think he is sitting at the end of a log with a small branch with green leaves.
