Black circle in sky over a lake

While fishing at a private lake my son took a picture of a single black circle that appeared in the sky in front of a cloud. He said it stayed at the same spot for about 10 seconds and then zoomed off extremely fast.

After looking at the picture he took enlarged several times, it appears to be a complete black circle outlined with a purplish blue light surrounding it.

There was only 1 circle that appeared and the only other things in the sky at that time were clouds and a few geese off to the left side, but not near the circle.

We have a photo of this circle on my cell phone. I would need to send it to you in a text message.
