UFO questionable on Highway 145 heading south to Cortez, Colorado San Juan mountain range

On July 15th 2019 while on a trip to Cortez, Colorado, heading south on Highway 145 San Juan Mountains range, I stopped and started taking pictures of the mountain peaks with my Nikon 5600 camera with a Tamron 28-400mm lens which equals a 600mm on the Nikon and with my Samsung Note 9. After the trip I had been going over my photos taken on the drive I noticed this black object in the sky on pictures with the Nikon and the Samsung Note 9.

With Samsung I was doing a panoramic of the mountain peaks and I noticed in one of the panoramic photos there is this black object. At first I thought it was a bird or a plane, though at the time I did not hear or notice any noise or this black object. With closer inspection and at the distance I was taking the photos, it couldn’t have been a bird I think.. It would have been to tiny. So I’m perplexed as to what I’m seeing in these photos.

I have a raw file from the Nikon, and the ones attached are jpg’s. with no edits. I have image information on the exif.

Thanks for any information if you think there is something to these photos and I will circle the photos of said object on separate photos.
