Thanks for posting your photo.
I have to say, I'm skeptical when it comes to determining the authenticity of a photo. There are a lot of things that can look like something else... and with the advancements in photo-editing software... it makes it difficult to believe something isn't edited.
Though, I think this image falls more under the former... There are a lot of bare branches that are reflecting light-- people with flashlights, I assume. So it's difficult to say whether or not that's an animal or the camera has captured a bunch of branches. Cameras don't usually come with a 3D feature (though there is that new fuji camera)... so I can't say if the light is shining against something the same distance from the camera or if the distance varies. Though, the pattern on the creature does look highly similar to the pattern made by the bare branches in the other portions of the photo.
I won't discount your photo as "not paranormal"... but I don't have enough evidence to personally say that it is paranormal.
Again, thanks for posting. The photo is quite interesting.
