Strange water formation in long exposure

It's not the pyramids...

A branch of leaves gently blowing up in the treetops would be a very regular light fluctuation.  As someone else pointed out, it could also be an oblong water droplet twisting through the air and only reflecting directly into the camera with every rotation.  In between it would be too dim to register in any way during a 2 second long exposure.  Imagine it took about 1/4 of a second to make it's journey, each rotation would be a tiny fraction of a second.  As bright as the light is in the sunny portion of the frame there would be plenty of light to show the drop in the exposure during those brief moments.
