What Do You Think

Over the years I have long taken pictures of interesting fungi and flora and generally interesting things I can use in my photo manipulations.
In 2005 my wife Holly and I were visiting a cemetery here in NH, viewing and reading the various tombstones as we often do.
At one point in our meanderings we were at the edge of the cemetery when I spotted this cool looking stump with some huge fungi on it and I decided to take a picture.
After taking the shot I checked the small screen to be sure the picture came out like I always do and spotted the mist you see in the picture. I looked back at the stump to confirm there was no mist present and sure enough there was not.
I decided I was apparently mistaken and my eyes were playing tricks on me due to the small size of the screen and the brightness of the daylight around me.
However, when I got home and was reviewing the photos on my PC I found that yes, there was indeed a phantom mist in the picture.
The cemetery contains numerous graves of soldiers from the civil war period and as I seem to recall a few from the 1700's as well. The date the picture was taken was July 4th 2005.
As we approach the time of year known as Samhain (pronounced SAW-win or SOW-win ) the Celtic New Year - now in modern time coupled with All-Souls-Day (Halloween) I thought it was a good time to pull this photo from my archives and post it for your contemplation.
What do you think? A trick of light or did I catch an image of a resident of this old cemetery?

It's a wonderful and mysterious shot that's for sure. Maybe you caught a resident of the cemetry... who knows? But I also like the explanation of the fairies.

Very eerie - especially when you were there!!! But I like the fairy explanation the best

And a little peak hat on her head, a leaf for her nose and a half smile. Wonderful!

Hey! I never thought of THAT Aelin! Perhaps that's it!

Are you sure it's not a chair for fairies, looking for the cemetary? Fairies like mushrooms. All i can say, it's the light played really around of the stump and weirdly
