oil in oil filter housing

I changed the oil on my 04 K1200GT today for the first time. When I removed the oil filter cover on the bottom of the engine some oil came out. Not much but it surprised me. Where would this oil be coming from and is it a problem. The oil filter cover has an o-ring on it so some oil must be expected.

Yes, the oil filter is within the oil pan itself!

So the little oil that came out was what was left in the oil pan after I drained the oil. Ok, good to know.
