What exactly is this thing ? Image Credit: Reddit / Drewb1072
The image, which was posted up on Reddit, shows what has been described as a 'demon-like ghost'.
According to the poster, who goes by the name "Drewb1072" on Reddit, the photograph was taken outside a house in Chattanooga, Tennessee which was once a Civil War army hospital.
"The homeowner warned me and the realtor before we arrived that her house is 'haunted'," he wrote.
"Patients were operated on inside the home and then moved to the field out back where most would die after being placed in tents."
"This photo was taken of the tree's face, and I didn't notice the figure behind it until this evening. I walked all around that field photographing it for the seller, and not once did I see that shape by the fence in person, or in any other shots."
"The fact of the matter is, 1) it's not intentionally faked. I understand you just have to take peoples' word for it. 2) I take photos for a living, not of spirits - but of real estate. I would notice if I needed to remove a garbage bag stuck on a fence or a big piece of fabric hung on the fence. There was NOTHING there after the photo was snapped."
As for what the image actually shows, opinions seem to be mixed.
Some of the users who replied were quite impressed, while others pointed out that the 'ghost' could be any number of things and that there is too little detail in the shot to make it out properly.
Whatever the case, however, there's no denying that it's certainly eerie.
