Time to throw some science at you. I had a psychology class many years ago and amazingly I remember something from the class that I have often referred to. The human brain interprets images that arrive as a group of dots or smaller pieces and tends to assemble them as familiar objects. That is why when we look up at clouds, we often are reminded of familiar objects. These are referred to as gestalts, which I believe is a German word for shape. Many photos I have seen of an alleged bigfoot have given me the impression that the viewer has seen a bigfoot which was formed from patterns in the leaves or background. The image in the Mars photo probably falls under this category. Also, we often see what we want to see.
