Question. Are the experts searching under the lamp post simply because the light is better there? On the otherhand, you’d think that someone else would have mentioned seeing a bird that large. Is it possible that it is a bird much closer to the camera than it appears?
I don’t know for sure what it is that the gentleman photographed over in that PA Walmart parking lot but the experts at over at CM do.
You can’t impress experts with mere detail, still; if this were in fact an accidental photo of a giant bird, where are the tail feathers I wondered. One could discern the head, wings, the dangling feet etc. but the picture of the American Bald Eagle makes it clear that from the angle of the photo, if this was a bird, the tail feathers should be visible behind the bird’s feet.
You can actaully see the faint outline of the tail feathers against the white cloud in the original detail photo–butif you turn the brightness down on the photo, their outline becomes quite apparent.

Photo: This sea monster is actually an ancient bronze candelabra nicknamed “the sea monster”.
“Curiously, ancient dragon depictions closely match those of dinosaurs and pterosaurs which supposedly became extinct millions of years before man even â€śevolvedâ€ť. Could the same be said for certain ancient â€śsea monsterâ€ť depictions? Did ancient depictions also closely match those of ancient marine reptiles-which supposedly also became extinct before man came on the scene?
On the left is a Greek, bronze protome (animal figure) from a candelabrum
from around . 500-450 B.C.”
“The skulls of plesiosaurs have a fairly noticeable feature in the top directly behind the eye socket or orbit. This feature is on the upper part of the skull and is either a depression or a hole and it extends over the width of the skull. The feature is called the supratemporal fenestra, meaning upper, temporal fenestre; temporal related to temples and fenestra from the Latin meaning window.
The question for those artists depicting the plesiosaurus skull is; how specifically will they draw the skull over the supratemporal fenestra–will the feature disappear in their drawing, covered in flesh in a way that renders the feature non-apparent or, will they draw the skull with an obvious depression or other feature that makes this â€śskull windowâ€ť noticeable?”
