The image  was one  I showed in my portfolio review.* The person doing the critique noticed  that the yellow slug had a  similar color value as the background grass.
Desaturate the image, and he's stealth slug!
 I played with the values, double checking the corrections in black and white:
 Here's how it looks now.  More changes to come, I'm sure.
