Dragons Fly Overhead

It's the Year of the Dragon in the Chinese Lunar Calendar. I wrote about it here if you would like to read more.

Imagine my surprise, when earlier this week, I looked up at the sky and saw a cloud in the form of a dragon!   



 

I quickly snapped these photos before the dragon flew away!

I'd love to hear what kind of interesting cloud formations you've seen lately.

That is really amazing! It doesn't happen very often that a cloud is all alone like that in the sky. Beautiful colors.

Hi!
Oh your dragonfly cloud is amazing! I'm so glad you were able to capture it... knowing how quickly clouds can change shape! It's beautiful too, wearing that stunning shade of salmon!

I enjoyed reading about your child sponsorship. My husband and I have been sponsoring children for a long time through World Vision. We've been looking into Compassion International, thinking that as our sponsored children "graduate," we will sponsor through Compassion instead.

Enjoy a lovely weekend!
Blessings to you,
