Andy Deitsch has traveled and lived throughout the world in search of the perfect shipwreck photography. Combining his love for traveling, scuba diving, and photography he has piled up quite the gallery of underwater pictures. Today, we bring you a select set of his best work, but there’s much more (and he shoots more than just shipwrecks!). Be sure to check out his flickr page to check out his other shots, or add him on Google+.

They’re two of the deadliest hunters known to the world. The cheetah and the leopard both strike with lightning quickness with their prey usually not even knowing they’re there until it is far too late. Each hunter’s ability to creep up on their prey unnoticed is not only due to guile, but also the almost unrivaled effectiveness of their natural camouflage. With the combination of their speed, cunning, and ability to go unnoticed they are truly two of the animal world’s most dangerous predators.
Here, we take a look as each is on the hunt. See if you can spot them, it’s harder than you might imagine!
A cheetah creeps up on its prey in Kenya. It is hidden by its incredibly effective camouflage and the high grass. The gazelles do not notice until it is too late, and with a top speed of 75mph, they are no match for the cheetah. The cheetah enjoys its meal before being chased off by hyenas.

The snow leopard, found here in the Indian Himalayas, are few in number with just around 7000 believed to be in the wild. They are fierce hunters, capable of top speeds up to 70 to 75 mph and extremely adept at blending in with their surroundings.

It is easy to see why animals have a hard time spotting these hunters. The snow leopards were particularly difficult for me to see without being shown where they were. Share this with your friends on Facebook and see if they can find them!
