Creepy Blue Figure in Olympia, WA Forest

I received this interesting photo from a reader:

Hi Lon-

My family and I recently went on a trip to Olympia, WA. We were on a forest trail; there were 5 of us there, and it was about 2 in the afternoon. 4 of us went ahead while my sister stopped to take some nature pics of the path behind us, as the forest was very beautiful. She doesn't like people getting in her nature pictures, so she double-checked to make sure no-one was in the shot when she took it. However, when she looked at it later, she found this:

In the distance, you can see a figure in blue standing at the end of the path.

The figure seems to be holding either a woodcutter's axe, or some kind of hand-held scythe. A very creepy thing is that it looks like it's missing it's left arm.

NOTE: I looked over the image...doesn't appear to be app enhanced or manipulated. What do you think? Lon

  1. What are they talking about? The left arm is clearly resting on the hip, and there is nothing in the right hand as it is resting at the side.

  2. Obviously a very alive woman that was overlooked by the photographer.

  3. i agree looks like her hand is on her hip! obv she wandered into shot inadvertently.

  4. Looks like a woman in a blue top and a print skirt, she may be holding a purse? Seems an odd outfit to go to the woods in, but not improbable.

  5. I see her arm, but on the left, right next to her is a smaller person. One is neutral color and blends in

  6. There is a smaller female students was looking person holding the hand of the woman in the blue dress. The smaller figured it is standing to the immediate left of the figure in the blue dress.
