Hello Don,

I originally posted because i saw the effect around the object
as a typical noise/artifact that i see in almost any jpeg and i
didn't want to see it become accepted as some kind of physical
effect until someone had pointed that out. Try looking at the
furthest left branch on the tree in the foreground directly
below and to the right of the object it has almost the exact
same combination of mosquito noise and tiling artifacts as those
that keep getting pointed out around the object itself.

I tried to explain as clearly as possible using known terms to
avoid any confusion on exactly what effects i was pointing out.
I never claimed to be an expert and the only satisfaction gained
was that of knowing i had brought to everyone's attention
something which might have hindered a fair analysis of the
photo. I agree this is far from being an IFO and i don't believe
that this is a bird or insect either but i am open minded to
both these things as possible explanations to.

I agree the "wing" is definatly not in proportion with the size
of what would have to be the body and if a semi translucent wing
is held at the right angle to produce a glazing reflection then
it would be highlighting the entire area of that wing because of
it's flat surface. I can't see any legs or body segments either
and if in flight a beetle has it's wing cases open .LOL so there
would be no smooth areas on the object at all except perhaps the
