June 29 Sundog

It's hard to see, but the faint, vertical smudge just above the trees in the center of the photo is the sundog we spotted yesterday coming home from a late afternoon excursion. The color of the actual parhelion was much more red and a bit prismatic. It is difficult to get good photos of these things with my little camera, but sometimes it surprises me and one turns out pretty good. I thought this one was quite impressive to the naked eye. The sun is the bright spot at the far right margin. You might get a better look if you click on the photo.
