I posted this on the KT, thought I would here too. This is Maggie, lying in her sunbeam today.
That is so cute. I thought it was a sun sun-dog until I saw it.
Lovely picture of a sunbathing dog!.....I too, was thinking of the "sun"....sun dog, I posted over a year ago.
Great photo!! Yes, I learned on this forum, what a sundog was. I photographed many in the past, but never knew them by the name, 'sundog'. You fooled me, too!
Maggie sure looks comfortable.
Nice photos also, Konrad! I really like the first one where the sundog is at the tip of that cloud. It looks as though the cloud is smoke coming from a burning ember.
OK educate me...what is a sundog? A place where the sun is reflecting off/through a cloud?
educate me, too! I don't see a dog? Love the colors though, Konrad...
Bigack, that is an adorable pic...I love the way the sun is beaming on her...
A sun dog or sundog (scientific name parhelion) is a relatively common atmospheric optical phenomenon associated with the refraction of sunlight by small ice crystals that make up cirrus or cirrostratus clouds.
Sundogs typically appear as a bright and colorful patch in the sky at a position 22 degrees or more to the left and/or right of the sun. They are a halo.
Thank you all!
Last year when I posted it,.....never knew what it was,... some of you educated me!
The sundog in the picture only shoes one half, [should be two] the other half on the left probably was there but at the time have never looked for, I think it was behind some houses.
If you google, something should come up.
I have seen those and had no idea what I was looking at...They're pretty cool...
