I do not have a clue what this is or was in the upper right part of this photo...I have some WAG but nothing 100% that I am sure of. Back in November I put a cam up on a scrape in a larger area of Live Oaks. I had not checked the cam since 12/16/19 till this morning when I picked up the camera. I got this photo while scrolling thru them all as it caught my attention.The previous photo was in the daylight the day before and the next photo after this was in the daytime the afternoon after this photo. I did not buy this cam...it was in a group of 5 a friend gave me. It takes pretty good daytime photos but the night ones are not good at all. I included some day and night photos as a reference to the location of the "ghost" in the upper right corner of the first pic.

Lightened up, added filter. You can see the antlers.

I see a buck with his head down facing the game cam. Chupa? Black panther?

Based on the size, I would guess it’s a deer just out of focus and blurring due to it being a night time picture.

I get pics on my cams like that quite a bit due to the cams having a field they over look and the deer tend to be just out of range and show as a blurred photo like that

Did the same on my computer when I first looked at the photo after downloading. My second thought was that it is a buck. From my view of it, he would be caught in full stride running/jumping away and the white in the photo would be his belly. It would not be facing the camera. It was unusual to get this photo only with the cam on the scrape. Most deer are walking into or standing at the scrape in the rest of the pics and I get more than 1 pic of them with a very short delay between pics.
My 3rd thought was an owl that was caught swooping down from the oak tree the cam was mounted to.

Not many cams have the trigger speed to get clear night time pics if there is any motion or movement from the animal. This cam has a really slow trigger speed also.

Deer running or jumping away. Looks like he just jumped over a fence. The front two legs are on the ground. The back two legs are tucked under the belly like he just jumped something. The tail downwards in the middle of the butt. The white patch is the underside of his chest.

My first thought from the original was a deer running away.

After seeing the enhanced pics or whatever I don't know, they don't look like anything recognizable to me.

There is no fence close to where he or it is at.

Same for me that is why I did not post an edit photo. It is to distorted to tell much and what is thought to be antlers is way distorted.

What it looks like really depends on how or when you look at it. After leaving for a while and looking at LarryCopper's edit photo he posted, it looks more like and owl swooping towards the camera or flying off the ground. The wings are cupped/flapping with the legs/talons extended down and outwards. It appears to have eyes glowing a bit from the infrared from the camera and could possible make out the face/head shape in his edit. Deer would be more likely since cam is on a scrape but I see fly from their roost and hear owls within 250-300 yards from this location.
