"I was passing South on the nearby A1 Motorway and noticed an army helicopter hovering stationary roughly 500ft above this field to my right. I realised why it was there when I saw these massive and very intricate crop circles. I pulled over and stopped at a nearby slip road and took this shot then walked into one of the massive circles.
The edges were exactingly precise. The wheat was forced over in a uniform direction across the whole area of each circle.
This shot only shows roughly half the area of the field that had crop circles in it.
I have a few more of these I need to find.
One thing is for certain, I bet the army got the best photos of this!"
