My friend and I had gone to the Maxwell Wildlife Preserve north of Canton, KS to see their Buffalo herd. As we rode around the site in an open trailer observing buffalo, I took a number of pictures with my Nikon D40 digital camera (ISO 200). On a whim, I took one of the sky because I liked the clouds. In the center of the sky picture (attached) is an opaque object that appears to be partially shaded from the sun, which was at about 2 o'clock outside the camera's view range. The object was NOT visible to the naked eye. I'm a MUFON Field Investigator (#19371) so I submitted it to Dr. Bruce Maccabee, photo analyst for MUFON, and requested his analysis. In response, he wrote, "Looks as if it might be an opaque object with a glint (reflection) from the right side. Difference in brightness of the glint as compared to the dark (not illuminated by the sun) left side seems too great to be a reflection from a bird. Unfortunately, the image is too "diffuse" to get an idea of the exact shape. Can't do much with "surprise" image reports such as this because no info on flight dynamics. May be worth a report anyway on the off chance that someone else might have seen it and filed a report."
