Sun Dog

If you look to the left you can see a sun dog. I just learned how to find them. If you  Wikipedia Sun dog  it will explain it better than I can. I look for them every day. Don't forget about my contest. It is over tomorrow. Good luck.

I see it!!! Isn't it cool to find them? Your photo is good, too. I clicked on it and got a good view in the enlargement. I thought I had spotted one yesterday afternoon, but was driving and it was to the side, so I couldn't ever get a good look without the sun getting in my eyes or taking driving risks.

@Anything--click on the photo to enlarge it and then check out the bright spot to the right of the light pole nearest the truck. It might look like just a bright spot, but if you move the angle of your monitor, you might be able to see the colors that are reflected from the ice crystals.
