While going through the pics on my trail cam, I noticed that this shot picked up some interesting objects that seem to be floating in the air. The photo is not edited ar altered(except for the red pen marks), but I have no idea what the anomaly is. The objects did not appear on any other shots so I don't think it was something on the lens.
