One thing that really gave me the chills though in your post was that you were walking behind a lady with 3 kids and carrying an infant - that pretty much describes me at any given moment - always with my 3 children and carrying my 18 month old.
I'm not really keen to talk about the UFO side of all this for various reasons. But this I can answer,
No thread killing about it, I HAVE tried with many different cameras to capture them. I am standing out on a beach as far from natural light as I can get where it is pitch black. You can barely see where you are walking without a full/strong moon. Photographing/filming them is much like taking a photo/film of Sirius in the night sky. On a Samsung S3, you cannot see it at all. On a proper SLR, (I took a professional photographer friend out to document) It shows up as a tiny, white dot on a blackground of solid black! He was using a new Nikon that (supposedly) can see better than the human eye in dark (it definitely can't.) And the more he upgraded lenses the further and dimmer they got.
If I was to post you a picture or footage of a white dot in the middle of a screen of black with no reference points. What would be your reaction? What would you say? Would you believe it's a moving object out above the middle of the ocean?
On occasions where they would 'buzz me' or come in very close, In the time I take out my phone to film it, they would back off to a distance where they could not be filmed.
Second to this, they do not WANT to photographed or filmed and I am not willing to push the issue.
