IN YOUR SIGHTS You have the eyes of a marksman if you can spot the deadly ‘sniper’ hidden in the forest in less than 30 seconds
YOU have the eyes of a marksman if you can spot the deadly "sniper" hidden in the forest.
This mysterious "gunman" is so well camouflaged that he is nearly impossible to spot amongst the foilage in under 30 seconds.
The footage was created by James Trouble, who runs the YouTube channel Kicking Mustang, and describes himself as a "hide-and-seek champion".
Speaking to the Mail Online, he said: "I've always had a love for hide and seek... I got hooked on the thrill of becoming invisible.
"I think if you manage to spot me half the time, you're doing well."
In the clip of the forest scene, there is very little that gives away James' position.
But on closer inspection, he can be seen hidden in a bush in the top left corner - just under a tree.
James has created a series of hidden sniper-style videos on his channel and even offers his followers some advice on how to find him in clips.
He said: "The best way to spot a sniper is to look for unnatural shapes.
"Straight lines, or shadows where there shouldn’t be any. We often spot deer in the forest by their horizontal flat backs, it’s the same with snipers, look for unusual lines.
"Any kind of movement, it doesn’t matter how good the camouflage is, if the person is moving they will be spotted."
Talking about how he conceals himself using to blender into his surroundings by wearing a special suit.
He said: "It has realistic colours and the 3D leaf is arranged in natural random patterns that mimic the forest floor.
"The suit is covered with an elastic retention system for adding natural vegetation to the field.
"The sleeves have elongated cuffs to cover the back of the hands and an elastic thumb loop to prevent the sleeves from crawling up while crawling."
James has been playing airsoft for 12 years, a team-based shooting game in which participants eliminate opposing players by shooting them with plastic projectiles.
The video has now been viewed over 300,000 times.
Other images of hidden snipers include an image of a deserted building in the middle of nowhere, there is danger concealed in this wintery forest.
The secluded wilderness and sparse trees have proved the perfect hiding spot for this gunman to take aim from.
The sniper expertly blended in with his surroundings as artist Simon Menner captured the incredible image.
The seasoned photographer was granted permission to watch marksmen in action with the armies of Germany, Latvia and Lithuania.
