A pet owner snapped this hilarious pic of his cheeky dog hidden in plain sight in his garden – but can you see where he is?

Snapped by 37-year-old Mike Simcox from Birmingham, UK, the pictures show his faithful pooch, Eddie – an 11-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier who is nervous and shy – hiding during a thunderstorm.

At first glance, the black hound is completely invisible to the naked eye with only his eyes standing out at closer inspection.

Eddie said: “Although he is a Staffie, he can be quite nervous and most of the time he has a slightly scared look on his face.

“He has an extreme dislike of loud noises, especially fireworks and thunder.

“During storms in the past he has gone upstairs and hid in the shower cubicle.”

The photos were taken as Eddie attempted to seek shelter during a thunderstorm.

Mike said: “My mum and I were watering the garden when she spotted him peeping out from behind the flowers.

“She said you should take a photo and see if people could spot him, so I did.

“There was a really threatening-looking cloud above me at the time so its possible Eddie could hear thunder and decided to hide, although why he decided to hide outside and not in the house I couldn’t say.”
