Thought I would post this here. I was wondering if any of our experienced photographers (anyone actually) have come accross the Phenomenon of "orbs".

Do a google search and or as a start check out;

http://theshadowlands.net/ghost/orbs.htm.

It's facinating.

This is the only example I have - from a snap of my daughter at home. Flash was used so I wonder if it was flash bounce.

There is a logical explanation for "orbs" Usually, this is caused by dust particles in the air reflecting the flash. This normally occurs in darker settings as the particles reflecting light become very bright compared to the rest of the image.

Would you say this was true in all cases?
