In this survey, we found 51 dark silhouettes against bright near-infrared nebula emissions as background lights. They are regarded as envelopes associated with YSOs due to their size and association with the YSOs. We derived size, morphology, extinction, and mass for each silhouette envelope. Description: Imaging observations of the M17 star-forming region were carried out in the J, H, and K' bands on 2003 August 16, 2004 July 5, and 2004 August 7 using the Infrared Camera and Spectrograph (IRCS) with AO on the 8.2m Subaru Telescope on Mauna Kea.
