Dark circle type disc captured on film and not seen until photo was downloaded

This morning my husband and I were driving over the Seven Mile Bridge in the Florida Keys. It was a beautiful sunny morning in the early hours. The sky was blue with no clouds and the sun was not too bright, but, was nice. I decided to take a couple of pictures of the water and the surrounding area with my digital camera. We were driving in a convertible with both the top and windows down. I didn't see anything out of the ordinary, until I downloaded the pictures and saw what looks like a small dark circle type disc in the background of the picture. I had shown my husband the pictures as well, and he said that the first picture may be due to sun exposure, but, that in the second picture, the object had a slightly different shape to it. I checked out the second picture, which was taken about 10 - 20 seconds after the first one, and I did notice that the disc shape was a little different and facing in a different direction than in the first picture. I as! ked my husband if I should report this along with sending the pictures to your organization, and he said that it wouldn't hurt, and that it would be interesting to hear what you have to say about this as well. There have been several sightings in the Florida Keys in the past years, and some of the possible UFOs were not actually seen by the naked eye until the pictures were actually downloaded. Most of the time, these pictures, I had noticed and had read, were taken either during sun rise or sun set. I am going to e-mail the two pictures to you as well. Thank you so much for taking the time to view them and read my sighting statement. I honestly believe that I may have captured something on film that could not be seen until I downloaded the pictures, or maybe I didn't notice the object at the time. If you do decide that this was an actual UFO sighting, this would be my first one. Thank you again and I look forward to hopefully hearing from you concerning my sighting.
