Please note my comment in the photo caption. What loaded onto DPR's site cannot show the pattern for some reason.

Other than cropping the head off (for privacy), that is an uncorrected photo.

The moiré shows up clearly in iPhoto or in PS Elements and in Apple's desktop viewer — but only under certain +/- magnifications. Curiously, in iPhoto, the moiré doesn't show up until you click on 'edit', then the pattern hits hard — at the same magnification.

Put the file on the desktop and open it with the viewer and the moiré is there again.

If it doesn't show at 100%, it's -not- the camera. Software editing programs can do this at various "magnifications" soft proofing.
