Don't know if this is real or not...

Got this pic in an email... I don't think there are words to adequately describe what could have happened if this was real...

Just thought this was too good not to pass along.



story is, he took this photo with a tripod and camera by himself. Didn't know anything was amiss until checking the photos later. Maybe a tall tale, may be true. Either way, its a heck of a pic!

I'd say 'not real'. Look how the cats eyes glow from the flash, but the hunters eyes,a good deal closer to the flash, show no effect. The cat was PhotoShopped in.

It is the dilation of the pupil that causes the eyes to glow like the cats'. The hunters eyes are not "glowing" because he was looking at the camera while the "red-eye" reduction was on. The cat just looked at the camera as the picture was being snapped- it did not have the benefit of the "red-eye" reduction. That is my humble opinion not necessarily a statement of fact. Personally I don't know if the cat was photoshopped in. Hell of a shot either way.

Yeah, the guy who sent me the pic said it was a photoshop job after he sent it... Neat looking work though...
