Photo taken: January 1, 2017
Here’s another photo that’s made….. well, maybe not great, but certainly interesting… due to an illusion of photography. Geez, what happened to this guy’s tail? You can see right through it like some kind of kinky lingerie. Given that this photo was taken when squirrels are rocking their full winter fur, it shouldn’t be possible for their tails to be transparent. But the squirrel is much quicker than the eye… even the camera’s eye, and so this photo managed to capture both a glimpse of the tail’s original position, and the background scenery that was quickly revealed when the tail moved elsewhere while the shutter was still open. That’s certainly a better explanation than this squirrel merely being a ghost, right?
