Maybe it's because the picture is so big, but I am not seeing anything....if you have photoshop or something resize the pic down to 400x400 and repost

Looks like a clump of yeast that has risen to the surface.

THIS is an infection

I agree I think it's a yeast colony that has been lifted up from the bottom via co2 and is just clinging to the glass.....

I wouldn't be worried about it unless it was on the beer itself, with "arms," tentacles or other appendages, (or big white nasty bubbles), and singing Broadway tunes...
