The o ring on the oil filter cooler is a common failure l point. There are several write ups on how to change it.

When my oil cooler ring was leaking it seemed to be coming from the back from the oil filter( or around there Atleast) it only seemed to be leaking when I first start up the car ( it would leak significantly fast ) but then the leak would stop when the car gets warmed up becuse I would check under the car right after I drive and it won't be leaking after the car was driving ( engine still on or off). It only leaked while it was getting warmed up. I took it to a mechanic And he fixed it super quick and did An oil change at the same time becuse I believe the oil filter has to come off. Hopefully this is your leak becuse it's An easy fix.

honestly, I can't even tell what I'm looking at in that picture. Looks like the bottom of the intake manifold? If so, that seems to be leaking right underneath it.
Maybe try snapping a photograph from underneath the car?
x2, get picture from underneath the car. That mostly looks like residue, I don't see any real trails of oil.

Your valve cover is what was leaking.
