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.
