My adventure partner took this picture. I think I asked her to take it, thinking it was a nest, perhaps. Nothing too weird. Looks like a fishing lure on the grass or pine straw there. Except the dark spot in the log. It’s funky.
I use my Paint.net auto-level as a quick check on images that look weird to see if it might be worth the time to fiddle around to try to bring out any hard-to-see images. I tried auto-level on the dark part of the log and got something I have never seen before and it’s really weird. What in the world?
