People stared a lot at the unusually well-dressed scarecrow in the middle of the field of marigolds who stood out amidst the orange backdrop with his black riding jacket and the shiny black helmet with a dark visor that concealed his face.
Though they were curious, the villagers never approached the scarecrow, and so the alien’s secret remained safe.
Posing as a scarecrow, he was about to gather much-needed information about the effects of their latest human experimentation.

For the visually challenged readers, the image shows a figure in a black riding jacket with a black helmet that has a dark visor. The figure seems to be standing in the middle of an open area that is covered by orange flowers that are in full bloom. A few of the flowers block the view of the subject and make it look less focused.
Stay safe, everyone.
