|Was shooting digital shots for a client of thier building (I'm a professional photographer) The building faces North, so I was there very early to catch the morning sun. I took approx. 60 shots of the building. On one series of shots, I shot four shots from the same angle, but varied them by zooming in and out. The camera used is a Nikon D100, with a 17mm to 35mm lens. This lens is one of Nikon's better zoom lenses. In fact it's the top of the line. It is not prone to flare. The digital camera is a 6mp. On the second of the four shots, there is an object in the sky over the building. I did not see it at the time of photography, but only noticed it when reviewing the shots. In fact, there are several objects in the frame, as well as the other frames, but they are so small you wouldn't notice them unless I pointed them out. None of these objects appear in any other frame, either of this building on any other that I shot that day. What makes this image so interesting is the fact that the object is sun lit at exactly the correct angle. This is not a plane or bug etc. I reviewed the info in the camera regarding this frame, and it revealed that the shutter was at a 60th and the f stop at f11. There is a slight blur of the object, probably due to the slow shutter. I'm am sending a jpeg to your e-mail address. please respond. I would like to know your opinion.
((NUFORC Note: We do not know what the peculiar object is. It is so odd, we may post it to our website. Our first guess was that it might be a bird or insect in motion, but the object appears to have two peculiar objects projecting out of it, which seem incompatible with a terrestrial organism. PD))
