I didn’t even assume it was something alive - the “eyes” could just be lighter colored objects (e.g. leaves) in a vaguely, partially symmetrical mass of vegetation for all I can tell. (In fact, given how bright the trees are, I don’t think the “eye” spots are bright enough to be light bouncing off a critter’s tapetum lucidum.)

These “I had this amazing experience, but anyways here’s a picture that literally could be anything, even if it’s not Photoshopped” stories are rather amusing. Though I’m never sure if they’re supposed to be funny or if that’s unintentional.

That’s generous. I see a log.

I took my phone out and took a picture. To this day, anyone I show it to swears its a river troll[…]

Well, not any more. I can’t make out much of anything.

Yeah, I was thinking the “eyes” were ears.

They should not wander around Florida with us.

In early 2020 before covid hit we were down in Florida about 5 miles into a swamp, no one else around but wildlife and alligators, lots of alligators. We heard some rustling on the side of the trail, couldn’t see anything so we kept going it kept going but still couldn’t see it. And then this guy poked his head out onto the trail.

Could have been a demon but I’m pretty sure it was an otter. It just wandered up to us and then wandered away. Maybe he thought we were a demon in his backyard.

That thing in the photo would have caused us to want to get closer and see what it was. I do know if I were living on a houseboat I would have a large spotlight handy to take the guess work out of it.
