This Latest Puzzle Has Us Searching for 3 Apples Hidden Among the Red Birds

Gergely Dudás - Dudolf

Who knew birds and apples looked so much alike? At least, they do in Gergely Dudás’ word!

Dudás, known widely as Dudlof, is a Hungarian artist Gergely Dudás who creates brain-teasing puzzles with hidden images. We’re a big fan of his works—from finding an acorn hidden among leaves, finding a panda among ghosts or a tiny heart among elephants, and many more.

Sure, Dudlof’s images can feature a random selection of items, creatures, and people, but they’re all so lovingly illustrated. From his wide use of colors to animals and facial expressions, his work always evokes happy feelings, no matter what.

There’s only one problem, however: The task at hand—finding whatever it is that he’s hidden among his images! Rarely, can we find it on the first try without cheating. But thankfully, Dudlof always provides a solution for when you’re ready to give up.

His latest puzzle was certainly one that we had to use the “solutions” button for. The photo, which is a nod to the holiday season, features dozens among dozens of tiny red birds. They’re all scattered in groups and we can almost hear them all tweeting happily among themselves. In the photo, we also see a few Christmas trees, a pair of boots, a plant and more.

Dudlof is asking his fans to find three apples among the birds. This might not sound difficult right off the bat, but once you see how much the tiny red birds actually resemble apples, you may change your mind. Here’s the image below!

See what we mean? It’s almost impossible to find the apples since the birds look so much like those!

Maybe you’ll have better luck than we did. Go ahead—stare at the photo. We’d love to know if you were able to spot the three apples, and how long it took you.

If you’re ready to give up (like we were), check out the solution to the riddle here. Now don’t forget to smack yourself over your head and think, “Why didn’t I see that?!”

Did you find the apples in the photo before having to look at the solution, or did you need to see where they were? Have you heard of Dudlof before? If so, what’s your favorite puzzle he’s created? Are you usually able to solve his task on the first try, or do you typically need to click on the solution?
