I am not sure what the temperature, pressure, humidity was like, but perhaps it was a piece of pollen, or an artifact from your digital camera.
One technique I use often is to apply color filters, with high contrast ie red, blue, black, green, it really helps with differentiating features.
As for it being something "natural" I would have to point out that it seems to be in a slightly curved line, things in nature follow the golden
ratio and fractionalization patterns, unless of course it was something with movement.
Now the next point, one 17th of a second is quite fast, and depending on how far this object was (if it is not in fact an artifact, humidity, etc)
would mean that it would be travelling quite fast in order to produce that type of effect (the elongation, and also the start and stop points) but
things like this have been captured on camera, like rods. Not saying that it is one, Nevertheless, it is an intriguing piece of photography, in the
sense that as of this point it cant be explained. We could get into all sorts of theoretical metascience to try and explain it, but i will leave that
to someone else.
I am intrigued to hear others points of view! I would offer to filter your picture, but do not have my own computer at the moment, this one is a
loner. I would be interested to see the results!
