I was photographing an eagle with my Nikon Digital and 500mm lens. I've always haphazardly shot photos of airplanes passing...especially with the telephoto - it really pulls them in closer.I shot one photo of a jet, then another photo less than 2 seconds after. I didn't know what kind it was until I downloaded in on my computer. The first photo shows the jet with blue sky all around and some spots that were on my lens. Then I looked at the second photo...without thinking I cropped it closer to get a better look (deleted the originals off the camera). The object I saw was puzzling because in the photo shot seconds before...nothing. I don't think it's possible for that object to have appeared in 2 seconds from that great distance.It does resemble the back end of a fighter jet with the afterburners...but still Impossible for it to be there that fast.Since it the photo was shot with a 500mm from a great distance, the clarity isn't there, but still it's a curiousity!I really WOULD LOVE SOME FEEDBACK!!!! The first photo is the one I shot first...then only seconds later the other.Please note that all the smaller jets I had seen around were leaving vapor trails but the big jets were not. It was about 70 degrees on the ground.Please let me know thoughts??
