Unknown 'Creature' Captured on Camera

Looks like a trail cam has caught another excellent image of an LM:

Unknown 'Creature' Captured on Camera

A Reddit user has uploaded an image of what appears to be a strange figure running through a garden.

The photograph is one of two images that were taken by a light-sensitive camera approximately two seconds apart. The earlier of the two pictures however didn't show anything unusual.

Nobody who was present saw anything in the garden at the time and the anomaly only showed up on the image afterwards. According to the uploader, the photograph was taken by an elderly couple who had no knowledge of Photoshop or other image manipulation techniques.

Intriguingly, the 'creature' even appears to have a shadow, so if it really wasn't added to the image afterwards then there must have actually been something physically present there at the time.

Right up there with the Gnome trail cam pic if you ask me, it also reminds me of a wee Alice the Goon or Marge Simpson.

If these were taken by a trail cam, why does it seem like the moon is further away from the electrical post in the first picture than the second picture within a two-second gap?

Assuming its the moon, that is. Airplane?

That is a pretty cool looking creature though if it is one.

If you check the tree in the right corner you see more of it in the other picture. The camera seemed to have zoomed in more between the pictures, also the street light has "extra strands of light" in the second pic. Maybe moon looks different because it was zoomed in or they gave wrong picture. Although the shadow of the creature seems to be in quite right place and about the right size even.

Because it IS. I loaded both pics into Photoshop and found that perspective of the moon HAS moved (good catch) and so has the camera... I had to slide one picture to align it with the other. 2nd pic is pointed further down (you can see more treetops in the first). Trail cams don't do that in 2 seconds.

It is not zoomed; the camera was just tilted down slightly which is why the building and moon double-expose and the pole does not. Someone banged the camera after setting up the doll.

This appears to be a phone pic (480x640), not a trail cam. Trail cameras are landscape (not portrait) because you are trying to catch a field-of-view and they always put a date/time stamp on the bottom, so the hunter knows when the photo was taken.

I think you are right, the more I look at the image I see the figure standing, balancing straight on one leg, not the animation of someone walking. It's like when a photographer doing a photo-shoot has a subject walking, they will not actually walk just strike a walking pose while the photographer sets things up and makes adjustments. A moving subject will give a less detailed image so I agree with the doll explanation.
