Pareidolia - (Pare-i-dō-lē-ah) - Pareidolia is the tendency for incorrect perception of a stimulus as an object, pattern or meaning known to the observer. Common examples are perceived images of animals, faces, or objects in cloud formations, or lunar pareidolia like the Man in the Moon or the Moon Rabbit. - Wikipedia (of course!)

I also can be slow in spotting Pareidolia. This is the second new word I've learned about today.

I have to admit I'm often very slow to see these. In fact, I didn't see it in the first image until after viewing it, reading the text, looking at the second image, rereading the text, then reviewing the first image. But once I do finally see them they can be so hard to not see. :-)
