Or perhaps a small field.....;)

My hunch is that this got put into a file late at night by a very bored image-processing operator--I wonder how many others are lurking out there....

Actually most people think it is a thrips, a v small bug that was squished between the glass plate and film during processing ... or a giant alien ...

Rumor has it that during WW2 some of the arial photographs included various bits of doctoring - bits of self-expression in what is otherwise a numbingly boring job.

film????
glass plate??

Seriously, I don't know exactly how they do it now, but I would have thought that Google would just link up to the digital files....

I'd agree but I don't know the first thing about how they process the images nowadays. But the squishing would explain why you can see the bugs entrails/excrement in a pool behind it. Lovely.
