Just barely. No offense, but your focus s-u-c-k-s big time...
Anyway, buy a "compressed air duster" can from Office Depot or the like and blast the things outta there.
Hopefully it wasn't someone's ear being scratched with the connector prior to putting it in the Mac!

I would have preferred the compressed air option. If you bend the gold connectors while prodding with the paper roll, the Ethernet port is toast and probably not covered by warranty ("user damage" they'll say).
As for the where whodunnit, look deep in the bag/sleeve/case you put it in. Maybe the Mac munched on a Twinkie and forgot to brush its teeth afterwards...

Time to do a CSI on the evidence. Is it really a fiber? What or who has your Mac come in contact with recently?
What with the "detailed" picture, really hard to do a profound analysis of the offending substance.
