Please take a look at the following digiscoped photo and try to ID whatever that is.
This was another recent photo from somewhere in Connecticut. I would caution that identifying the tree will probably not be of any assistance to you. Don't worry about the slight lighting flare either. I'll provide a more typical photo I took in a post with the answer that should help to end any confusion about this strange shot.
