Unexpected encounter with UFO whilst holidaying in the Indian Ocean

I was messing around with my camera shutter speed settings on my Nikon Coolpix along with lighting and HDR so that I would be prepared for the types of settings that beaches give off when taking pictures with cameras. (The sensors react to the reflections of the water and so on) any way, that was what I was doing in the back of my villa.

Mindless tinkering.

After I had finished I went back inside and checked over all the pictures because it wasn't a bad shot and I wanted to keep it. That's when I discovered this anomaly on one of my pictures. I've observed it as much as I can and it looks as if it was in the background, behind the tree's in the sky.

Not a bug of any kind that I've seen as most are solid black or bright yellow. Also, out of all the other shots I had taken, this was the only one with something different in it.

Unfortunately I didn't see it with my own eyes, I only noticed it once the picture was taken.

Didn't even see it on the view finder. (1080p screen at that). There are plenty of examples in the picture to gauge a size, I'm no professional but it looks pretty big but It's most defiantly in the sky.

The coloration of the object and the fact one of the leaves is covering the left UFO in the picture. Same with the exit UFO on the right.

I was located at the time on a very secluded island in the middle of the Indian Ocean.

I have another picture in of the same shot, different time to compare against.

The island itself is a quiet one and I have been there three times for the past three years. This last time was the quietest of all.

Usually there is a bird that chants its mating call, similar to the island name, 'meeru!' Barely heard it this year.
