Nice find. But isn't it odd that they are walking in farmland? Also their size seems wrong (measured at least 7 meters long)?

This is kind of an eletric or oil tower, look at the shadows and compare it to the trees near there...

It's definately electricity pylons, there are two more sets NW and SE of this pair. The shadows are also triangular.

At least we (may) see some life on this island earth... ; )

Here is the proof that it's pylons. I have marked them some of the way.
