Feather cloud



I am always amazed when I see shapes in the clouds. This one is a feather. Just one single cloud in the entire sky!

The correct name is  Cirrus cloud ( feather cloud or mare's tail) and made of ice crystals. Cirrus clouds are thin and wispy clouds very high up, 20,000 ft or higher.

  1. Very pretty! I love clouds. When I was a kid I thought that the sound of airplanes going by overhead was the sound of clouds moving (because we would hear the airplanes but not see them.) I was quite a bit older before I realized the truth, ha!

    1. wouldn't that be something if clouds would make noise ;-) When my kids were little they were sending greetings to their Grandma via coulds. They picked an especially pretty cloud for that duty.
