Image of Jesus in 1942 photograph

This is a photograph of a bird in a tree that my grandmother took in 1942.  She kept it in her bible because of the image of Jesus that came out of it.  My father has the original. 

I wanted to share it with the world.  I thought it was spectacular when I when I first seen it 40 years ago, and it still makes me feel so happy to look at it today.  


  1. Where was the original picture taken? Did she take more than one picture? Can you see the bird in the photo...if so where? What kind of bird was it take she was taking? I believe Jesus turned out instead too. It's an awesome picture. Did she take it at home? or was it like after leaving church or something? Please,'s really interesting because I have the same's a copy though. Please, send me an email of how to talk to you more about this. I'm researching the photo and would love to talk to you....where it's private. My email is Thank you.

  2. Hi Stacey, hope I can reach you with this comment. Like your commenter before, I'm thinking of publishing a website highlighting the various apparitions of Christ that have surfaced over the past 100+ years through photographs of nature. I would like to talk to you more about your Grandmother's startling image. Is there an email you can give me? Or even a phone number. I'm a musician who is a Christian and would love to help you share this with an even wider world through a website I'm thinking of developing. Thanks, Timothy.
