After lunch today I went out on the deck by the ravine and mused on my story. I sat under an umbrella and sipped tea. The sun was brilliant. Birds sang–baby birds. I couldn’t see them, but I distinctly heard the soft peeping of a handful of hungry little things. I don’t know where the nest is. It seemed, rude, somehow to go poking about looking for it. Harassed parents need their privacy.
Then I saw this corona around the sun. I don’t know if there were actually sundogs or not; the brolly was in the way (and even I’m not dim enough to gawp directly at the sun). For a moment the sky turned into a blue mirror. If you look carefully, you can see the shadow of the central contrail against the sky. An astonishing thing. I felt like a millionaire.

Thank you for this photo. The sun is shining brightly here today too. It uplifts my spirits and gladdens my heart and leads to the drinking of beer. I have the day off and a wonderful day it is.
Very cool! Thanks for sharing. :D
What a gorgeous picture and a wonderful event to witness. It has been so dreary here, we are seeing a constant barrage of cloudy and rainy days. On the flip side the flowers are extraordinary and the greenery is brilliant. Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny and lovely, I am keeping my fingers crossed.
You are a millionaire in some ways – a multi-millionaire spreading the loot around today…
But is that shadow an illusion? I don’t suppose cameras pick up illusions. Huh. Great photo.
Oh outer space. When we look at you, our nervous system starts freaking out.
