I suppose that is a possibility, but I do know one thing for sure.....my game camera is a pretty good one, and much movment at all blurs mine. Not to mention that by the time that deer leaped that high in the air, wouldn't the arrow most likely have passed through? Who know.....I sure don't, but in the image where it is blown up, you can see the trees and sky perfectly behind and through the deer, but don't know as much about "ghost images" as you do. Still a cool pic.Don't be so sure that it's been doctored. Deer move fast when shot. That little bit of skylight along it's back looks like ghost image to me. The flash stopped the action at probably 1/10,000 of a second and the shutter speed was probably around 1/60 of a second which would allow double exposure between ambient and strobe lighted parts of the picture, especially very bright background areas showing through rapidly moving strobe lit parts. I'd vote for it being real.
