What A Stunning Photograph,

and I am not the only one to think so,

this picture by photographer Marcio Cabral won the prestigious 2017 "Animals in Their Environment" category that was held by the Natural History Museum in London, it was a night shot of a glowing termite tower with an anteater, taken with a 30-second exposure at Brazil's Emas National Park, it has everything going for it, stars, and if you look carefully shooting stars, glowing termites and an anteater, Marcio had been visiting the National Park for three years waiting for the right conditions to capture the glowing termite mounds, the entry reads, "After days frustrated by rain, he was in for a surprise, a giant anteater ambled out of the darkness" and stayed just long enough for Marcio to take a single picture, using a long exposure and flash to highlight his unexpected companion." but then some one commented, how do you get an anteater that is feeding to stay still for a 30 second exposure? then someone else noticed the resemblance of the anteater to a taxidermy anteater on display at the park's entrance,

and this is it, now I will not comment on the validity of the picture, but the picture has been disqualified after a thorough investigation, for the full story have a look here.
