Figuring Out a Spooky Belmont Manor Photo and Paredolia

First image - no eyes
Earlier in the year during one of the public ghost investigations at the Belmont Manor in Elkridge, Maryland one of the public ghost hunters took two photos in the woods when she sensed something. The first photo showed nothing but blackness among the trees. The second photo had what appeared to be red eyes looking at her. The photos are below. What do you think?

WHAT IS PAREDOLIA? Pareidolia (/pærᵻˈdoʊliə/ parr-i-DOH-lee-ə) is a psychological phenomenon in which the mind responds to a stimulus (an image or a sound) by perceiving a familiar pattern where none exists. It's like seeing a face in a cloud.
Do you see the red eyes on the right side?

FIGURING OUT THE PHOTOS - I'm not saying the photos are paredolia, however, One of the Inspired Ghost Tracking investigators suggested that the red lights could be a car's tail lights, or some kind of beacon n the other side of the woods. There are a number of things it could be, however, the photographer claimed she heard no car, and there's really not a road near the cemetery of the Belmont Manor, because it lies in the back of the property.

  1. I do see on the second photo, where one might think those two very small red dots on the left are eyes. There is so much in the world and universe(s) that we might only know a part or parts of.

  2. Hi. i agree with the Inspired Ghost Tracking investigator who suggested that the red lights could be a car's lights. Also i can see the two red dots on the right side of the photo that is listed as the "first" image. If the two red dots are in fact a vehicle's break lights it would have to be that the image listed as "second" is in reality the first photo taken, as the red dots are closer in that pic and farther away in the photo listed as being "first".
