|On a research outing i heard and saw movement alongside the road i was working on, later something was found in the images.
I was with my Mother and a friend, we were taking her along on a photographic search of a active area. We are involved in regular field research and gather photo's showing the activity in our County.
I was walking about half a block in front of the car, which was using its running lights so as not to effect my pictures, I was taking pictures in sort of a panoramic effort, trying to cover as much of both sides of the road as possible. Was using the flash, and shot 165 photo's on this road alone.
There was no sound besides my feet in the gravel, But at a certain point I began hearing noise of heavy movement in the tall brush to my right. It was on a area where there was both thick brush and fence.it was on a slope that ran up to a fence line maybe my head height.
Thinking it could be a possum or racoons, or rabbit, I took pictures in that direction as a precaution, an off chance. I saw a shape moving I guessed might be a big dog, its head though seemed very thick, and there was a reflection on something light colored when the flash went off. I was aware of it but continued since it had shown no aggression.
I was moving along at a good pace figuring to inspect photo's later, When I did I found two taken in that area, that showed a figure of some sort. There was a light colored torso and I believe arm, and head. This was in a spot of thick brush shoulder high, the next photo was only a bit later, and showed a muzzle and forehead of something looking around the base of a pole.
It had a thick jaw full of teeth, and a yellow eye with a slit pupil, and a green cast to the skin. I could see its position due to the flash's. By the third shot it was gone, we finished our run and went home.
