Do ghosts linger in the area where they left this life? One of our readers, Barb, thought she was just taking a picture of a pair of deer at the edge of the woods. When she later viewed the photo, however, an unexplained blob appeared hovering above the grass. Then we noticed that there is a home-made wooden cross nearby the type that people place in areas to designate where a loved one died in an accident. Is the unexplained blob the ghost of the victim?

barb has been showing me these pics of orbs appearing in some of her pics. she has a beer club nite once a month at her business and one of the members and a very special friend of ours died in october and these orbs st arted to show after his passing. i took my camera down one nite (none had ever showed up on my pics) and took several pictures. lo and behold, if mine didn’t have the orbs in them. i truly believe this friend was there that nite, and showed thru in my pictures.

It looks like the contrast has been increased a lot in this photo, which would enhance how much this light area would show up. Also looks like the color saturation may have been increased. When deer leap their tail goes up showing a stark white patch, while the rest of them is still dark and well camoflauged. The height of this lighter area is just about, to me, where a deer’s upraised tail would be if it were leaping away from the photographer and into the woods. White spot in motion against dark woods, up the contrast a bit and you’d have this photo. Just my thoughts on it…

The picture is not enhanced. I did not change the contrast or brightness. The deer were not moving. They’re in my yard everyday and are not afraid of me. The picture is no hoax. Do I believe in ghosts? I never used to. I took 2 pictures in a row. The second pic had no white thing in it. The cross in the background is where my dog is buried.

I get a lot of strange pictures myself. So I am a believer.
I see a mans face in the blob; and I also see a small brown dog behind the right deer, that is not mentioned.
Deer wouldn’t stand still with a dog so close by. Strange.
