Strange Glitch??

This is the last shot fired before the buffer maxed out on my Nikon. It saved fine on the camera and I was able to convert the raw file with no problems in lightroom. Just wondering what this is and if anyone's seen this before. It's the only time it's ever happened (in 30,000 actuations) and worked fine afterward. I was shooting in raw, normal color and this is exactly how it was saved in camera.

my best guess is your memory card is dying. you will most likely get more shots with corrupted data as the card continues to die

Well, it could just be a fluke due to the buffer being full. The image itself looks like it's missing the green channel. It's obviously corrupted, which might explain why it partially repeats, but to really know what's going on with it you'd have to compare the structure of it to normal ones in a hex editor or something. It'd be more trouble than it's worth.
