My article Orbs: dust, pollen insects or just plain paranormal? has provoked some interest.
Sam Williams from the Orbfinder website has taken an interest and generally agrees that further research is needed. Her own website is full of interesting Orb photographs. Sam is now actively seeking Orbs, and is experimenting with dust and different sites and cameras to see what "results" she can achieve. The website is open minded and interactive and is seeking debate.
