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?

RE: Sun dog

From Wikipedia...

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!

Yes KT!

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.
