The real dragon?

Still on the line of flying dragons, we then had one evening with a most peculiar cloud formation. As the sun set, the light caught a most incredible cloud formation. It was shaped like a huge bird... an albatross was what immediately sprang to mind when I saw it. The shape was amazingly clear and the rest of the sky was totally clear. I have no idea what caused it, but it was certainly very beautiful.

A slightly closer view. Sadly the tiny little camera that I have fails to do justice to this amazing sight. (Photo: D. McKay-Bukowski)
I can certainly understand how people long ago would be amazed by such apparitions in the sky. It is certainly fascinating to consider what our ancestors might have made of this.

A great bird; a portent of winter?

Or maybe a great white dragon?
