Shape: Rectangle
Gray/White object moving very fast photographed over Paso Robles.

I was taking photos of a real estate listing on the morning of 5/19. Whenever I take exterior photos, I take multiple photos in a "burst".

When I got home to process the photos I saw that this photo had what I first thought was dust or a bird. However, upon zooming in to remove it, I noticed that it didn't look like any dust or bird that I had ever seen. To me, it looked like a strange aircraft.

None of the other photos in the "burst" had this in it... which leads me to believe that it was moving VERY fast since the images were taken at 1/1250 sec with roughly 4 images taken in a second.

I am a professional photographer and out of the 30,000+ photos I have taken, I have never seen anything like this show up in a photo.

((NUFORC Note: Hummingbird or cicada, we suspect. PD))
