thanks for the reply howard. I did wonder if it was just a digital camera effect although it still looks odd that you get the apperance of the "things" moving when seen in close-up.
Also to Faceless, that's a good suggestion, but I wouldn't have the foggiest idea of how to reproduce what showed in my photo's or how to cause lens flare.
