1. I have circled the figure and kept the rest of the shot in negative;
2. I have cropped the photo in a vertical rectangle;
3. I have cropped the photo in a horizontal rectangle, put it in negative (the white figure's defined outline indicating that it is a solid object), and brought up the colour levels to further analyze the photo.

The next day, once I had entered the forest, I immediately heard a rhythmic striking of two sticks together, from several hundred feet away. So the sound was a bit faint, but in definite, fascinating polyrhythms! Instantly I realized what had happened : the juvenile had witnessed my "drum solo" the previous night and decided to musically communicate with me! I looked for a pair of sticks and, though branches lay underneath the grass, woven into intricate patterns (which I had the feeling were better left undisturbed), I could not for the life of me find a pair of suitable sticks - in a forest! Granted, I was making haste as I was not about to let this opportunity pass me by! So I picked up a pair of rocks and began clacking away in the funkiest of rhythms I could muster. The jam went on for about half an hour!
Over a twelve day period me and Taya'a (from Janice Carter's Sasquatch glossary, means "friend" - sorry no reference) exchanged rhythms and had a grand old time! (And I did find some sticks the next day, haha!). The entire story of "Jammin" will have to be told another time. The question is, was the figure in the "Little Watcher" photo Taya'a? Yes it was. How do I know this? Please refer to the blog titled, "What Is Quantum Communication?" if you have a hard time believing telepathy is scientifically possible.
I was psychically contacted by Taya'a's father (whose nickname is "Odin") before my visit to the Ozarks was over. He has confirmed that Taya'a is the figure in the photo. It was thanks to his and his wife's authority that T got to play music with Taya'a! Taya'a was always fascinated and enthusiastic about this strange Human (a Canadian in the Ozarks!) and constantly followed me around and observed me, unbeknownst to me much of the time. That's what he can be seen doing in the "Little Watcher" photo.
