Photo identification - help needed

Hello,

I've got this photo from two sources, one stating that it is a Do 215 from 2./Aufkl.Gr.Ob.d.L. while the other source identifies the photo as showing the tail of a Do 17 Kauz night fighter claiming that the photo comes from a person serving with a Nachtjagdunit.

It is known that a few Do 215 with Aufkl.Gr.Ob.d.L. displayed victory bars on their fins - but that they would notch up four victories - even with trigger happy gunners seems unlikely, especially since they tried to avoid enemy contact during their reconnaissance missions. However, there is photos showing one 2./Aufkl.Gr.Ob.d.L. aircraft with three victory bars - so why not one aircraft with four?

I've not seen any Dornier night fighters with camoflage netting placed on the aircraft, rather they were parked under camoflage nets. So that would suggest that it is a reconnaissance aircraft.

Could anyone add some details to this? Thanks!
