Figure 2.

Stimuli used in experiments 3 and 4 and results. Top panels: stimuli and an example background used in experiments 3 and 4. Target types are: uniform camouflage gray (G), uniform conspicuous white (W), high-contrast black and white striped (HS), low-contrast gray striped (LS), high-contrast background matching (HB), low-contrast background matching (LB), high-contrast disruptive (HD), and low-contrast disruptive (LD) patterns (see main text for details). All target types except W have the same average luminance as the background. Middle and lower panels: the mean number (plus 95% confidence interval (CI)) of successful captures (left panels) and missed attempts (right panels) of the different target types in experiment 3 (moving targets) and experiment 4 (stationary targets).
