Mr. Nesbitt, will you stand up, please?
(long pause while nothing happens)
Mr. Nesbitt has learned the first lesson of Not Being Seen: Not to stand up.
However, he has chosen a very obvious piece of cover.

OMG, does this bring back memories LOL! Photographically perhaps not the prettiest thing I've ever seen with that dark shadow and the shrubbery dead center, but then I don't recall any of the "How Not to be Seen" sketches as being about the beauty of the landscape. Still chuckling ...

Very nice. I like the layers of different tones and the one centered bush seems just right. I like it more each time I look at it.

This made me laugh out loud! I wish the tonal range were just a bit more.
Nice clean sensor! :P Seriously! Mine would show spots!

This was absolutely one of the funniest scenes of all Monty Python! Thank you for bringing back fond memories of this one!

So subtle, so perfect. I think this challenge is the only time I'd ever laugh hysterically at a photo of a bush.

Alternate title: "A Shrubbery". Considered that one myself.
