Oil leak?

I have a minor oil leak coming from somewhere around the oil pan, but I'm not exactly sure. I'm hoping with a couple pics, someone can help me narrow down the cause of it.

I had the car detailed, and they cleaned the under side up too. So now I can see more clearly where the leak might be coming from. It looks like oil is dripping down right where the diff meets the oil pan. I'm not sure if that's where the leak is, because it's hard to see anything above that point. Anyways, that is where the drops are forming. The drain plug looks clean, same with the whole driver's side of the oil pan. Any ideas?

Thanks!

The most common and easiest to fix would be the valve covers. ( be sure to replace the spark plug tube seals as well.)

If it won't re-tighten the bolt must've been cross threaded. (do you have a tap and die set? If that won't work only alternative is new/used oil pan.
