Unidentified object in photo of storm clouds.

Several months ago, I adopted a little hobby of taking photos of cloud formations. My camera is nothing special ... just an old Samsung 35mm 8.1 pixel camera, but it takes pretty good photos.

Last night, Tulsa County was under a thunderstorm watch and warning for a few hours. I went outside to take photos of the incoming storm clouds right before dusk.

At approximately 20:00 (I'm guessing) I took a photo facing North that turned out really nice. I wasn't noticing any small details in the sky at the time. I was just looking at the overall "picture" as I shot the photo. A bit later I uploaded the pic onto my computer and noticed something unusual in the photo. It does not look like an orb, a bug, or a plane, or something on my camera lens, to me.

I don't know what it is, so I will be emailing the photo to you and maybe you can decide? I'm also sending an additional photo, though you will probably do this yourself ...

The second photo is a cropped, enlarged port! ion of the photo that focuses on the object. I also tweaked the resolution to make the object appear sharper.
