    Ever found something looking back at you in the print?

    With all the wonderful landscape and nature photos in this forum, I'm just wondering if any of you have ever been surprised to find a critter looking right at you in the print that you did not see in camera.

    Oh yes... Shooting some tiny flowers close up. On getting the prints back, what looks like a wide mouth lizard.... But it is still just rock.

    If I find the print, I'll scan it sometime.

    Sort of the opposite:

    I have had a couple images in the redwoods that were long exposures (minutes) with wildlife present. In one, a herd of elk wandered into my scene (8x10 camera), and in another a black bear wandered into the scene (4x5). None of the beasts stayed still long enough to show up on the film, though.

    The bear did not worry me, but the bull elk started to make funny noises at me -- I have never torn down the 8x10 and have gotten it into the pack that fast! I moved away, got up and over a couple large downed redwood trees and he decided I was no threat to his ladies.
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Laurent sent me a print in an exchange a few years back and there is a face in the foliage.

    I had what I thought was a T. Rex in a couple of my photos. Eyes and ears were in the right spot, it even had a nose and an open mouth. The wings I did not see until after I got the photos back from the lab. So I guess I had a tree dragon instead of a Tree Rex!

    Shoot more film.
    There are eight ways to put a slide into a projector tray. Seven of them are wrong.

    Once in a while, focusing on a construction site, I will see an upside down angry looking person approaching wearing a yellow hard hat. This usually means I am about to be invited to leave or go meet with the police. The solution to this problem has been to come back on a Sunday when all the angry faces are gone, but the construction and equipment are still there.

    Wow, I had a very similar experience but I was shooing closeup in a trib of the Potomac River at Great Falls MD.
    After printing/proofing a few choice frames I found as crayfish under a rock in the flow.

    I remember the movie, it starred David Hemmings playing David Bailey who the director Michelangelo Antonion actually offered the part to first, and he would have loved to do it but unfortunately Bailey said he was unable to accept it because he is dyslectic and unable to learn lines .
