Very rare to be found in its native environment as well!

Excellent photo!

Pretty sure that's photoshopped. I think those things are an urban legend...

I had a picture of my 40 X 60 shop, trusses set, but no roof sheeting. It showed nearly 2000 sq. ft. of flat hard, smooth floor, with NOTHING on it. That image was lost in the first great sever crash, several years ago.

I have no corroborating testimony. SWAMBO claims it never happened,Therefor, it has become an urban legend, as I fear yours might.

You really should take that rare captured image to wally world and print a hard copy, for the safety deposit box. I wish I had.

A few months ago, for a brief moment, I had hard, flat, smooth empty space, almost 100 square feet, (I think it's called the slab) in the front of the shop. It filled in so quickly, I never got a chance to gather evidence as you did. Perhaps next occurrence.

Congratulations on your rare find.

Oh I have way better things to do than that, heck it took me a month to get to that table. Besides the dried blood is a bear to get out of concrete.

You must have that table in a low-gravity spot. Push it up into a corner and the gravity will return.
