Mysterious image of man with hat appears to the right of her brother, who was not aware of the apparition.

He apparently died early in the 20th Century, based on his hat and coat. But that didn't stop a mysterious spirit from photobombing a Georgia's teen's photo. Now thousands of people have seen him, a direct violation of Rules pertaining to the newly deceased, according to Beetlejuice. Oh well. The image of man with hat appears to the right of her brother, who was not aware of the apparition.

Georgia mom Jessica Ogletree posted the story on Facebook, inviting people to share it, since we all have an interest in the afterlife. Ogletree wrote that her 13-year-old daughter Haley and son Kolton were on a fishing trip with their grandparents in Tifton, Georgia when the ghost appeared in one of Haley's selfies.

"FB FRIENDS CHECK THIS OUT! This picture was taken by my 13 year old daughter earlier today at Paradise (the fishing place) in Tifton, Ga. Notice my son Kolton in the background and then notice the gentleman standing to his right!!! Ya'll this gentleman was NOT with them today and there was no one else at these back ponds where they were fishing! The only people there today were Haley, Kolton, and their grandparents Dennis and Vera Baldree.

Haley was going back through her pictures and saw this and needless to say freaked out and called me lol! I personally think it's pretty cool because today is Kolton's birthday and he caught the biggest fish he's ever caught! It looks like the man is happy for him!

This about Ghosts from Wikipedia: In folklore, a ghost (sometimes known as an apparition, haunt, phantom, poltergeist, shade, specter or spectre, spirit, spook, and wraith) is the soul or spirit of a dead person or animal that can appear to the living.

Descriptions of ghosts vary widely from an invisible presence to translucent or barely visible wispy shapes, to realistic, lifelike visions.

The deliberate attempt to contact the spirit of a deceased person is known as necromancy, or in spiritism as a séance.

The belief in the existence of an afterlife, as well as manifestations of the spirits of the dead is widespread, dating back to animism or ancestor worship in pre-literate cultures.

Certain religious practices—funeral rites, exorcisms, and some practices of spiritualism and ritual magic—are specifically designed to rest the spirits of the dead. Ghosts are generally described as solitary, human-like essences that haunt particular locations, objects, or people they were associated with in life, though stories of ghostly armies and the ghosts of animals rather than humans have also been recounted.
