Mexican researcher Luis Ruiz Noguez wrote an excellent summary
of Bonilla's photos, available in Spanish:

Noguez quotes that even Fort speculated the objects could have
been birds or insects. The idea of a comet, I think we can all
agree, is highly unlikely, least of all because it doesn't fit
the recorded and reported evidence, one of the points which Ray
mentioned.

Bottomline is, we don't know for certain what the objects were,
but it's not unreasonable to suggest they were prosaic objects,
as we have several other instances of such in contemporary
observations and records.

And the one certain thing is that it wasn't the first UFO photo,
as Noguez mention there are previous ones.
