How are you determining this? The trees in the distance are further from the depth field of this blue light.

Article about strange anomaly but it is lens flare or auroral reflection:

Not a typical lens flare what you see in video game graphic effects:

I bet someone would call these lens flares orbs:

Lens flares come in many different forms and variations. I think the circle ones are most common, but basically there are dozens unique kind of them.

Or could it be reflection or lens flare from an insect?

this is what they said

Hi Kevin,

It's exactly what I thought. If you draw a line vertically and horizontally through the image, you'll see that the ghost is as far to the right of the vertical line as the sun is to the left, and it's as far below the horizontal line as the sun is above it.

What's happening is the sun is reflecting off the sensor - hitting one of the elements inside the lens - and then bouncing back on to the sensor. It's a very common thing when there are bright light sources in the composition - I see it with night time shots as well.

case closed. they actually call such atypical lens flares "ghosts" or "fairies" lol

Beautiful! But I didn't know that lens flares could cause that blue "electricity" energy looking thingy. Isn't "light" wonderful!

If you're careful and hold a magnifying glass at the right angle you can create the effect on your hand. Just keep tilting the lens until you get it.

Having tried this, I recommend instead using a bit of rock or something doesn't make bacon smell after a few moments.

I've also got several photos of these, taken on the same night, Halloween (honest) and in different positions in my garden - they were taken at night, in my garden. Often wondered what they are.
