Camouflage has for quite some time been used in the military. However, it is important to note that, this is concept that is borrowed from nature. In an example, when looking a herd of zebras, it is really hard to tell how many they are in the group, much less tell one zebra from the other. This is strategy that is already implemented in nature and one that indicates the effectiveness of the same when it comes to the zebra being hunted down by their predators such as lions. In the military, the element of camouflage has been use where it was applied from the point of creating phase of invisibility. However, the most interesting approach with camouflage is one referred to as disruptive camouflage. This is much like the case used by the zebras. Disruptive camouflage relies in confusing the enemy about form and telling apart the objet they are looking at. The enemy could be aiming their telescope down on a warship and could not tell apart the front from the real.
The picture of the zebras changes the way space can be perceived. It is not easy to where one zebra starts and where they end. This is a rather interesting camouflage given that the zebras are not hiding they are simply changing the perception of space. It is not easy to tell how many zebras are in the thicket.
