Take Time to Look At Things Like a Kid!
I remember growing up in the Great Swamp in north Jersey. We rode horses, stayed out until the street lights came on and made up scary stories about Swamp dwellers. Those Swamp dwellers could be lurking in the Black Brook, or in trees...
This is not located in the Great Swamp, but the Cloverdale Farm Park in Barnegat at the Jersey Shore.
Looking at it through a kid's eye, looks like Mothra to me!
