|Does it happen all the time or just under extreme circumstances such as this? I find a lot of my lenses that appear clean give this effect with very OFF highlight bokeh, it's normally tiny bits of dust that you can barely even see with the naked eye but get enlarged a lot in the bokeh.
The distortions towards the bottom could possible be over tensioning but the long thin piece and the orbs are certainly tiny pieces of debris IMO
I wouldn't worry about it if it only happens in rare circumstances and if it was a really fantastic photo I suppose you could clone it out in a few minutes.
