Yes, I thought of not posting the picture at all. The piece you see
is a very small part of a picture taken from about 10 feet away. The
lighting was poor, the camera was poor, and the processing was poor.
But I had decided that I was not going to attempt to get any closer
without an observer/spotter to take the picture.
With someone else there to knock him down if he had tried to strike,
I could have gotten a lot closer.
Anyway, I tried to cover the comedy of the picture quality by my
comparison of this picture to that of a UFO. I hope it was taken as
the joke it was meant to be.
