    In a painting, darkly.
    Back in February, I was in a hurry to take a photo of two deer that showed up behind our apartment building. I forgot that the flash feature was on when I snapped the photo with my cell phone. That made the glowing white snowman-looking blob. The grid pattern comes from the screen in the window. What I can't figure out is why the deer look partially transparent and why there seem to be additional deer heads, with different positioning, at the red arrows. The window consists of two panes of glass separated by an inch or so, in addition to the screen. How was this effect produced? It was one cell phone, one lens, one photo. Do the two panes of glass in the window account for it? Thanks for any input.

    I'm no photography expert, but I would say that the apparent transparency of the deer is just noise, as are the two "deer heads". Mobile phones tend not to have the best of optics and sensors and once you start zooming in everything begins to look really muddled, especially if you already have a diffuser like a screen between your lens and subject. Not to mention the glare of your flash on the window and screen will also affect how other portions of your image will look.
