I would post up more of my orb pictures, but I don't have authorization for it from the subjects in it. They're paranoid about the government watching them through the internet. And among other things. Its quite hilarious.
Its not dust nor a dirty lens, or a flare up. I've studied it, and did everything I could to make sure. I know what I'm talking about, and I know what I'm doing. I've compared it to several other pictures that have flare ups, and it doesn't match. But dismiss it if you want, I've been doing this for the better part of my 19 years of life.
I realize that when you have a photograph that you have taken and you see something in it that was not there when the photograph was taken, it can be exciting and you want to believe that you might have captured something that is unexplainable. There are no doubt some photographs out there that can't be debunked or explained, but when you post a photograph or evidence on any site, you must be prepared to face the possibility that others are going to question your evidence. For the most part some of the criticism is not helpful and I pretty much just dismiss those folks, because it is obvious they have nothing productive to offer in any way of an explanation. There are those times that others will objectively take a look at your evidence and give you a constructive analysis of the evidence. They may tell you that the evidence is not evidence of paranormal significance, or that the evidence is flawed, but at least they provide explanations of their conclusions.
First off, I do not believe orbs are anything paranormally significant. With the advent of digital photography, many photographers have been plagued with capturing dust, moisture, ice, etc., etc. in their pictures. These often appear as orbs of differing colors. Because of the huge influence paranormal studies have gained over the last few years, there are some in the field who claim orbs are paranormal in nature because they have captured these anomalies in places that were claimed to be haunted. They made a false claim of faith that if the location is haunted, then these orbs must be spirit based, and voila...people have taken up the banner orbs are spirit based. This is why we see so many orb pictures.
Now before everyone wants to tar and feather me, there are true orbs if you will that are energy based in the form of ball lightening and St. Elmo's fire. These are naturally occurring phenomena that are rare, but do happen. They are not paranormal in nature.
Based on the photograph you posted, I see too many reflective surfaces in the picture that can not be dismissed. I also see in the picture a bird in a cage, this could be the cause for minute particles of dust in the air that was captured. Being that this photograph was taken outside, there is a high possibility that the orbs captured are dust, pollen, or moisture in the air. In my experience as a paranormal investigator that has reviewed thousands of photographs and further based on my life experiences, this photograph of orbs is not paranormal in nature.
Do not let this dissuade you from continuing your search and investigation of the paranormal. Do not look upon this as derogatory or negative, it is simply an honest evaluation of your evidence, nothing more nothing less.
