The brown coloration of the ground near the top of the cabin section of the fuselage suggests the main rotor head was turning for a few seconds after the fuselage came to rest, excavating soil and placing it on the surrounding forest litter. Could have been only a few rotations, but the rotational inertia would be low at that point, assuming the main rotor blades (not visible in the photo) had already been shed.
