That looks pretty strange now that I see the whole picture.
Looks like they may have incorrectly put the neutral-ground connection in that MLO distribution panel. Looks like both neutral and ground wires going to the bar on the right. Then possibly the large bare wire from the bar on the right going to a ground rod, and possibly the large insulated wire (with the nest) from the bar on the left going to the water water main inside ... or some variation.
Are the two bars connected together in that panel (maybe that wire at the bottom of the left bar loops around to connect to the bar on the right)? Also where are the large insulated wire from the top left bar and the large bare wire from the bar on the right going to ... are they possibly connected to a ground rod and/or water main? Kinda looks like they put the N-G connection in that panel, then disconnected the ground/bond wire from the MD. Strange.
Tack on some incorrectly identified wires ... like a white wire going to a breaker and black wires going to the neutral/ground bars.
Definitely evaluation and repair by a sparky ... ![icon_wink.gif](upload://ssT9V5t45yjlgXqiFRXL04eXtqw.gif)

I am absolutely amazed sometimes by how much thought goes into doing things wrong
