Tonight I took this photo of my house when I came home from work. During post processing with PS Elements I found a couple of lens flares. One however is very strange.

Small drop of water on your lens perhaps? Just a guess...

At first glance it looks like small, shiny surfaces reflecting your flash back at you...

Probably aliens.

Well, I certainly hope Bob (' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Phillydigishooter) gets it figured out. Looking at his profile he seems like a decent guy that wouldn't ask for help if he didn't need it.

If you used a flash, you are probably getting a reflection in the window and probably something down by the post. Look at that area and see if there is something there that would reflect back.

Could be the bit at the bottom of a drainpipe that is angled outwards. It does look attached to that post....

Orbs...You, my friend, have clearly documented a supernatural phenomena.

You should get in touch with Rose.

Thanks everyone for your comments.

This morning before I left for work I walked the area and found nothing that would reflect the light back. I also went to the road where the shot was taken from and did not see anything reflective. The post is wood. Been thinking its may be a reflection off the truck but I don't understand how its so close to the ground.
