Some of us do know what we are looking at and how to do a certain amount of analysis.

The flash fired. The shutter speed was 1/109 sec. The focal length of the zoom was 14.3mm (about 2x). The aperture was 4.2, nearly wide open. While this camera has a short focal length lens which results in having a greater depth of field than a higher quality camera, with this aperture there will still be a limited depth of field. The camera used has no manual focus capability and since the plants in the foreground are in reasonable focus it is apparent that the autofocus has selected a fairly close object.

The fact that the photographer did not notice the object "in the sky" when the photograph was taken is a sure sign that it is close to the camera and in motion. The streaking effect described earlier is often seen in these circumstances.

I think it's a bug.

This type of attitude always helps when determining the origins of unidentified objects.

I'd agree that it warrants more examination, but the likelihood that it's a bug is miles ahead of the likelihood that it's anything abnormal. Always best to start with the simplest explanations.

Well, then accept this simple challenge: place on this thread a photo of a bug, any bug, an inset, any insect, that is identical to the OP's object. Let's see it! Sometimes what may sound like a prosaic explanation does not turn out to be so.

So the species needs be identified. It's aspect in relation to the camera has to match the photo. It's wings must be in the same position. The same type camera has to be used under exactly the same lighting conditions? No problem.

Ok. You win. It isn't a bug. It's an the sky that the photographer didn't happen to notice even though it was in the middle of a gorgeous sunset which he was photographing. Absolutely no way it's a bug or other small object close to the camera.

if that was a something in the sky, there would not possibly be the shadow,

it looks like piece of food on a papercopy picture and then scanned or repictured without being cleaned
