dirt on the lens ? : i doubt it , if malay dirt is anything like british dirt - once a speck of it gets on a lens it asumes magical properties that
defy the laws of physics
it cannot be removed , it attempts to multiply , it attracts MORE dirt etc
i hate dirt
bird [ at middle distance] ? : doubtfull - i have just tried a quick resize and sharpen - and it still looks like a uniform oval - there are no
distingushing freatures or colour variations apparent .
insect [ at very close rage ] ? : most probable IMHO a sub 1cm insect within meters of the lens would easliy give that unfocused blob , with illusion
of lateral motion .
EBE saucer craft ? : not enough data to judge , but i doubt it
human aircraft ? : even more doubtfull - a plane or helicopter would likey have been heard too - and a para glider / mirco light is unlikley for the
same reasons as i dismiss the bird theory - lack of definition and shape / colour
a question for the OP if i may ?
Q1) - you apear to be standing on the patio of a bar or hotel , were other people , were there many other people present , and also are there other
buildings ringing the bay you photographed ?
the reason i ask - is that a fast moving object , is more noticable to or brains than a slower one [ of comparable size ]
if other people were looking out to sea - they should have noticed a large hi speed object
my gut instinct is " it is an insect "
