0. Please don't send images of packet dumps. It is less traffic and
easier to help you if you send the raw packet.

1. It's not TCP. Its UDP.

2. It is a DNS lookup packet. It comes from your system's DNS resolver.

3. There is no way to find out on whose behalf it was sent.

There's no point in being grown up if you can't be childish sometimes.
