Bizarre Drone Pictures That Need Explanation
Not too long ago, the only people that could own and operate drones were the government. But now, anyone can own one. Since they've become a part of our everyday lives, people have used their drones to capture some truly bizarre images. The following drone footage is weird, wild, and needs some serious explanation.
A Swimmer's Worst Nightmare
A drone was innocently roaming around the beach when it sported something spine chilling. A shark was circling a group of unsuspecting swimmers, the drone owner quickly alerted the coast guard, and fortunately, no one was injured.
Feeling On Top Of The World
The average height of a wind farm turbine is 212 feet. It's the last place you'd expect to see someone lying around, which is why it was odd when a drone spotted a man sunbathing atop one of these giant structures. The man casually looked at the drone and shrugged his shoulders as if everything was normal.
Tech-Savvy Snake Catchers
Drones have helped advance several different industries, but their most unexpected influence was in the snake capturing business. Drones have made it safer for these people to spot and catch snakes. This picture was taken after a successful day in the office for two hardworking snake catchers.
The Mysterious Clown
This blurry picture is actually of a clown running away into the forest. The drone spotted the suspicious-looking character in the woods and followed them. Once they saw the drone, they dashed into the dense forest, never to be seen again. Creepy.
A Message From Beyond Our Solar System
The truth behind crop circles has never been found. These shapes usually appear on farms all over the world. They are formed suddenly, often during the night, and no one knows where they originated from. Could this be proof of alien life?
The Exploding Car
A drone captured a seemingly innocent car casually driving into an industrial area. The owner of the drone didn't think anything of it but followed the vehicle anyway. Suddenly the driver rammed into an object, and the entire place went up in flames. It was later found that there was severe foul play involved.
The River Of Blood
A drone operator was in for a shock when he saw what looked like a river of blood. They decided to investigate, and their suspicions were confirmed. The owner then reported what they saw to the local authorities. They found that the local meat manufacturer was illegally dumping its waste in the river.
A Creepy Clown
Ever since the movie IT hit the box office, creepy clowns have been popping up worldwide. A drone spotted this clown in a field in the United States. Once the clown saw the drone, they took off running into the nearby forest. And like the last one, no one knows where they went.
The Heroic Farmer
A wildfire threatened to decimate crops in Brighton. A local farmer named Eric Howard quickly decided to stop the fires himself by using his tractor to dig fire lines around the raging flame and cut off its path. The idea worked, and he managed to save his crops as well as those of the surrounding farms.
Floating Shark Food
This shark was captured sneaking up on an unsuspecting fisher in the ocean. Sharks approach boats for one of two reasons. Either they are curious and just want to look around, or they are hungry and are looking for prey. Let's hope it was the former.
A drone owner decided to follow around a group of people on a boat. The drone circled the boat for several minutes, but the people didn't seem to mind. The drone owner got more than he bargained for when one of the women on board looked in the aircraft's direction and took off their off top.
Unexplained Sea Creature
In every culture, there is at least one myth about a giant sea monster. No one has ever really seen one and lived to tell the tale. Take a closer look at this picture and tell us what you think. Did this drone finally uncover a mythical sea monster?
This dizzying aerial view of farmland has left many people pondering about the meaning behind it. Did the people who created it intend for it to look like this, or was it just a bizarre coincidence? It's hard for us to tell based on these images.
The Mysteries Of The Earth
The Google drone camera captured this mysterious image that depicts a giant being with large ears. There are still secrets about the Earth that humans are yet to uncover, so we can't speculate on what this mysterious thing represents.
Is That A Giant Crab
Another giant sea creature that looks like a crab was spotted in a dock by a drone. The owner was taking the drone for a spin when suddenly the camera picked up this mysterious creature. No one has been able to explain this bizarre image.
In the D.C. comics, the people of Gotham City use a giant bat signal to call on Batman when they're in danger. Those comics are the inspiration behind this massive bat signal. It's unclear whether someone shows up when it's lit or if it's just for show.
Coca Cola Engraved Land
The most powerful conglomerates use their extensive budgets to put their names on just about every billboard. Instead of sticking to the norm, Coca-Cola decided to something bizarre. They engraved their logo in a patch of land in the middle of the desert. It's anyone's guess how much something like this costs.
The Mysterious Landing Strip
At first glance, this looks like a random landing strip in the middle of nowhere. But there's more to it than meets the eye. No airplane has ever landed or taken off from this place, and no one knows why. If this place wasn't built for commercial or government use, then why does it exist?
The Swimming Pool On The River
This may seem odd, but it's more common than you think. The massive pollution that happens in rivers has made the water dangerous to swim in. But the river's location and scenic views make it the ideal place for swimming, so people build their own swimming pools around those areas.
Getting Up Close and Personal With An Active Volcano
Very few people have ever seen an active volcano up close. This drone got as close to one as you can without bursting into flames. You can see by the image just how hot an active volcano is. The drone operator zoomed in using the aircraft's H.D. camera to make sure the picture was clear.
The Airplane Graveyard
Ever wondered what happens to old airplanes when they stop functioning? This drone was able to capture a rare image of an Airplane graveyard. As you can see, dozens of aircraft are left to waste away in the middle of nowhere.
Like the riverside pool, you saw previously, this beachfront swimming pool was designed as an alternative to the polluted ocean water. This pool was designed to be large enough to accommodate most of the beachgoers.
There's no mystery surrounding who made this crop circle. Upon further investigation, the drone owner found that this person was upset with their neighbor because they had painted their garage door a bright purple. The paint job disturbed their neighbors so much, and they decided to send a message using their lawnmower.
Not so bizarre, but we felt like you needed to see this anyway. A drone spotted this lovely piece of garden artwork that depicts a pond shaped like a heart. The artwork seemingly belongs to a couple that lives in a secluded home. This Gatsby-inspired design belongs on the walls of a museum.
Whirpools are terrifying because they appear out of nowhere. This drone spotted one such whirlpool in a river that looked like it had been there for ages. It's not clear where these types of whirlpools lead because no one that gets caught in one survives.
Sunbathing On Rooftops
This woman minded her business, getting a nice tan on the rooftop when a drone snuck up behind her. The aircraft startled her, and she ran off to hide around the corner. When she returned, the woman had a broom and tried to swat the drone down, but it got away.
Save The Drones
Newer drone models are programmed to fly back home once their batteries become low, but older models didn't have this feature. When they ran out of juice, the drone would crash land. This is an image of a drone owner rushing through a swamp to try and save it from landing in the water.
Crash and Burn
This was the last picture this drone-captured before it collided with this dirt bike. The operator wanted to get a little too close to the action but ended up getting in the way. After the collision, the person riding the bike fell off, and that's one of the last images we see.
Drone Delivery System
The courier industry has benefited the most from the commercialization of drones. Now you can order food and have it delivered directly to your door in minutes without having to worry about the delivery man being stuck in traffic. But as you can see by this picture, drones are now being used to deliver more than just food.
The Lazy Dog Owner
A drone didn't take this picture, but it's still just as bizarre. A dog owner was too lazy to walk their dog, so they decided to strap it onto a drone. The poor dog was terrified and almost flew away. Fortunately, the dog came away from this unharmed.
Speak Now Or Forever Hold Your Peace
This couple's wedding day was ruined when they had an unexpected trespasser. A local boy was playing with his drone close by, he lost control of it, and it flew straight into the faces of this couple right before their first kiss. Talk about timing.
Drones Of Prey
Birds rule the skies, and when some birds see any unexpected intruders, their instinct is to attack. This drone felt the full extent of an eagle's might when it crashed into the drone. The bird was unharmed, but the same can't be said of the drone.
Hole In One
A father took his daughter out for a round of golf, a drone captured this heartfelt occasion between the pair, but it wasn't prepared for what came next. It turns out the child was a pretty good golfer, and she knocked the drone out of the sky with her first attempt.
There's No Such Thing As Privacy
Back when the government only owned drones, the only creeps people had to worry about were those that worked for them. Now, any random person can operate a drone, and as you can see from this image, privacy doesn't matter to them.
The Drone Stalker
This creepy drone operator was flying his aircraft around the beach when he spotted a woman sunbathing. As soon as the woman saw the drone, she put on her clothes and charged after it. The operator then taunted her until she eventually gave up and went back to her sunbathing.
Swinging For The Fences
This drone got the sharp end of the stick when it went past a group of people playing golf. One of the players was about to tee off when the drone disturbed them, causing them to make a mistake. The golfer didn't take kindly to the intrusion, and she took one of her clubs and started swinging at the drone.
Beware Of Karma
A drone was passing by a neighborhood when it spotted this woman doing her stretches. The operator circled, waiting for her to turn around and take a dip in the pool, but she never did. When the owner tried to recall their drone, it got stuck in the trees behind the house and broke down.
When a wildfire blazes through a settlement, nothing is left standing. This image is of a city that was left in ruins by a devastating wildfire. As you can see, it decimated everything. The only things left standing were the tree barks.
Mysterious Ghost Ship
No one knows where this ship came from or who left it there. A drone operator discovered it in the middle of the ocean. And you can tell by looking at it that the ship looks has been left there for decades, maybe even centuries.
A drone operator in Russia decided to play with their aircraft around a tiger enclosure. In the beginning, the tigers playfully chased around the drone, but once they saw how low it was flying, they pounced. In moments, the tigers ripped the drone to shreds.
A Falling Ship
This ship was pulled off its hinges by the tiny little boat at the bottom of the picture. If the drone had not captured this picture, not many people would've believed that this was possible. Fortunately, the ship kept its balance and didn't tip over.
The Sheep Gate
This fantastic image showing a sheep gate is a rare and majestic sight. This obstacle is a way for farmers to prevent livestock from passing through the gate all at the same time. This method helps farmers keep their livestock under control.
Taking A Dip In The Pool
This drone was flying in this neighborhood when it noticed a woman walking around her backyard. When she saw the drone, she started playing with it, not knowing how close she was to the edge of the pool. The woman tripped and fell into the pool, and the drone captured it all on camera.
Bike Stealing Bandit
After someone used a drone to steal his bicycle, this teenager hung his head. At first, he thought that it was a prank, but as the drone got further and further away. He tried to chase it, but it was too far for him to do anything.
Stay Out Of Monkey Business
This money wasn't too happy when it spotted a drone spying on its family. The drone had been surveying the monkey's territory for several minutes before the monkey decided to do something about it. It picked a loose tree branch and started yanking at the drone. To the monkey's dismay, the drone was able to escape.
There's no denying that drones can be useful. Their commercialization has helped move society forward, but there's a cost. There's no way of regulating them. Anyone can buy a drone, even the people who shouldn't own them. And some people still believe that only the military and government institutions should be allowed to operate them.
