Full Description & Details
Attached photograph was taken just over a couple of weeks ago in the Sooke area of Vancouver Island. It was taken by me using a Nikon Coolpix 5700. I saw nothing in the sky when I took it, in fact it only came to light when I uploaded the photographs to my laptop later in the day. It was one of a group of photographs I took within a five or so minute period (almost a panorama of the Becher bay area) It appears in none of the other photographs. My wife and kids were with me at the time. They saw nothing either. It was the middle of the day. I thought it could be a bug on the lens but it somehow appears to have a sort of depth of field, and focus is in line with surrounding trees, clouds etc. It is not a bird, even at this quality of image this camera can pick out a seagull at 400 ft!
