filter cam

No Filter
Interesting artistic picture or one for the delete file? Here is the story and you can decide. I set up a new camera and got an interesting group of pictures that look like they have some sort of filter on them. I'm not sure if it was caused by a rough night with an opossum or if it's just the new camera going haywire. The picture minutes before and after it are in full color on a beautiful day. The time and date are messed up, but as far as I can tell it was taken 7/31/15 at around 4 in the afternoon. Hopefully resetting it and some fresh batteries will fix it.
