Pensacola beach UFO sighting 2:34 pm

I went to Pensacola Beach (Pensacola FL) on a Tuesday with my Olympus digital camera. I was down by the pier and saw a Big transport plane coming across the coast close to the shore line. I put my camera in 5 picture per second and took some photos of the transport. NO other planes were in site. When I got home and looked at these pictures, another OBJECT appeared in two frames. It couldn't have been a bird since the plane was so big and the OBJECT was almost the same and following the transport pland. At the time, I saw nothing else in the sky except the transport plane. No other sound. It was a clear day and I have the pictures I would like you to see.

((NUFORC Note: We have looked at the photos. The "transport" is a C-130, presumably on approach, since its landing gear and flaps are deployed. The object looks like a bird, perhaps an osprey. PD))
