Canon A3100IS Captures an Unknown Black Blur During Thunderstorm

Let me be clear. I did NOT see this object with my eyes. I was taking pictures of a thunderstorm in continuous mode and captured on ONE of the frames an oval black blur. As far as I'm concerned, it could be a bird in flight, but it appears oval. Unfortunately, the only frame with the object was taken without testing the average white balance before taking pictures of the thunderstorm so the color is off, but the object is clearly present. I've also deleted all the other frames except for the one with the object, but none of those deleted frames preceding or following the frame with object showed the object. I used a Canon A3100IS to capture something, likely a bird. I'm only submitting this report because UFOs tend to appear during such electrical activity.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect a bird, caught in flight. PD))
