An ordinary August afternoon's ramble into the Ainsdale moss lands near Southport, Lancs, UK produced some fascinating images that remain unexplained.
UFO author Pat Regan took several photos of the local countryside and one of Jason, his youngest son.
Later Pat discovered three strange flying objects in the picture with one in particular that has him puzzled.
A budding Lancashire naturalist, complete with dad's trusty blackthorn staff
But what's that in the sky behind Jason? Later Pat ringed three objects in the frame.
The first object may be nothing more sinister than an insect - but then again, who knows?
Pat thinks the second may possibly be a bird, but again this is not certain
The third object is somewhat more mysterious and young Jason thought it was a "fairy with green wings".
Although somewhat fuzzy, an extreme close up crop of the third object seems to reveal something that indeed has green wings.
Pat said: "This one has got me puzzled as I have been a naturalist for nearly half a century and not seen anything like this flying around here before. I was not aware of anything flying past us when I snapped this shot and it was a calm afternoon. The only bird that may seem to fit the colour profile would be a lapwing but the outline definitely doesn't fit. Besides, they are noisy birds and there was no sound. I just am not sure what this was."
“Any potential claims that it may be a camera dust issue would be futile, as the camera I used was a sealed unit that is not susceptible to dust invasion.” Jason was however quite sure that it was just a "fairy" and could not see what all the fuss was about.
"Maybe Elsie Wright and Frances Griffiths, (young girls who took the famous Cottingley Fairies photos in 1917) finally have some serious competition," quipped Pat.
Pat is the author of The New Pagan Handbook, UFO: The Search for Truth and other titles.
