Not sure but I don't see anything that resembles a drone when changing the lighting in the area of the image that I cut from the original. Possibly lightning bugs? Odd that the lights seem to parallel each other though.

You can save the picture and zoom in on it with an image viewer.

It could have been windy or some kind of ambient noise could have covered the noise of the drone. Our ranch is close to a "fly zone" so our animals are use to hearing planes go by all day every day. I actually use that to my advantage. I have used the cover noise of a plane flying by, on multiple occasions, to draw my bow.

It is simply extraterrestrials scanning for life. They saw the pigs and decided that they didn’t want earth if that’s the best it could do……..

All i can think of is a border patrol drone or something - might have picked up on the heat signatures of the pigs.
If its not that - 2nd guess is ET.

Default Reflection

The spacing matches with the width of the feeder. My guess is metallic reflection off the top corners of the feeder when the flash goes off.

That's two small animals, probably night hawks sitting on the corners. You are seeing the reflection of their eyes.

Either this, or the moon was in just the right spot in that picture. Camera shows almost full moon.

Or, it's the most obvious... aliens.

This here- I've had it on my feeders too. I don't understand the reflection but one flash and it showed up once, the camera flashed again and you see the second reflection show up.

Yeah Moultrie says it has to do with the reflection bouncing around the IR camera. Happens with deer eye shine on my camera occasionally. Threw me off initially because pigs don't shine. Good call.

It’ll be pretty scary walking to your stand in the dark. But then, you’ll have lights.
