A Two Egg Ghost?

Notice the unusual white spot near the center of the photograph at right? This showed up in several different photographs taken at the ruins of the old Central School a few miles northeast of Two Egg.
"Ghost hunters" call these "orbs" and suggest they may indicate something supernatural. Others believe in more earthly explanations for them, suggesting they are simply unusual light effects that sometimes show up in photographs or possibly even the camera capturing light reflecting off dust or an insect. Personally I favor the latter explanation, but I do find them interesting and would love to figure them out.
This one is unique because it shows clear movement (notice the white streak leading from the bottom). This suggests to me that the flash of the camera created a reflection off something that was moving, possibly dust, a leaf or an insect. I'd love to hear any thoughts you might have.
