Thoughts on what this "scar" could be?

Just wondering if anyone has seen anything like this before and what the cause could be. This is the first time to see this small buck...

Could be an arrow wound, but I doubt a deer would survive a shot that hit there... from a treestand at least. IMO, it looks like a bug flying in the air between the cam and the deer. To me, it looks like there is a shadow behind it. I could be wrong, but I know I get a lot of flying insects in my trail cam pics at night. Hopefully you get some more pics of that deer. It's tought to confirm anything after just one pic.

A moth flying straight up slightly to the right. There is a shadow being casted on the deer about 12 o'clock. It appears it's pretty close to the deers body, less than a foot. IMO:smiley_bril:
