      Volume V has reached the magical threshold of 100 posts. Already 5 volumes of marvelous look-alikes. It is great fun to share our own pareidolia in marvelous look-alikes.

      Volume V ends with What The Cat Brought In by Keelin. One can guess (or better: check he former volume, which is fun to scroll through). The cat herunder will come up with bigger prey I suppose.

      hello fellow cloud lovers, i’m new here, 59,011

      thought i’d share with you this heartening heart that appeared outside my window on almost the last day of december, 2017. a welcome sight at the tag end of a tough year

      A warm welcome to you, Arielko! You’ve a lovely heart there. And thank you for sharing it here. ;) Hope you’ll continue to join us on the CAS forum.

      In the photo below, what first caught my eye was the 22˚ halo. But later, when I viewed the image on computer, the loosely-shaped heart cloud morphed into a little dog’s head and the wispy bit of cloud to the right became his wagging tale. Ah, the fun and fantasy of pareidolia!

      Welcome Arielko. you posted a great heartwarming heart. A great halo, Keelin. The sundog where you are waiting for might have run to a different thread. And I love your Furry Paws Land With A Splash. Are they from the Dog After His Ball by Ruth?

      thank you keelin and hans! i’m very glad to be here.

      keelin, that’s a lovely heart.. don’t you love finding things in the photos after the fact? some of my favorite photos are bumblebee or bird-bombed. and finding a cloud heart when you thought you only had a halo… That’s pretty darn nice.

      Even an arachnophobe would find your Sky Spider something of a marvel not to be feared, Hans. And to be followed by another big heart from Arielko, well, that’s love for you! And Ruth, when your dog is ready to abandoned that comfy pillow, perhaps he’d like to go for a car ride with his head out the window?

      i love to to see and read all these heartwarming things above: Dog on a mamma pillow (there is no better place to be found) by Ruth, another true Heart from arielko and  Oh Boy! A Car Ride! Great fun with all this hair in the wind, Keelin. You must know I just did a ride with my hairy fellow to the cool beach early in the morning to avoid the heat on what is going to be a dog day, or in French une canicule. Don’t know why they call it a dog day or canicule (canis is Latin for dog), since she certainly does not like the heat. But she loves the beach anyway.

      Hans,

      Dog days are the hottest period of the year, the period between early July and early September, when Sirius, the so-called Dog Star, rises and sets with the sun.

      From Wikipedia:

      The dog days or dog days of summer are the hot, sultry days of summer. They were historically the period following the heliacal rising of the star system Sirius (known colloquially as the “Dog Star”), which Hellenistic astrology connected with heat, drought, sudden thunderstorms, lethargy, fever, mad dogs, and bad luck. They are now taken to be the hottest, most uncomfortable part of summer in the Northern Hemisphere.

      There was also a movie entitled, “Dog Day Afternoon” which was about a bank robbery gone wrong, probably the title comes from the bad luck element.

      keelin, that dog is clearly having the time of its life! It really is evocative, I can almost feel dog drool coming in through the back window of the car :)
      and hans, i hope you and your friend were able to stay as cool as possible. It really is, as Duncan has said, most uncomfortable.. If only we could be like that bird on a wire, and just take flight in the cool breeze

      speaking of dogs, just this morning I spotted a passing dachshund straining on its leash

      What a clever blue dog you have there, Arielko!

      And gotta love that wild Billy and his great goat coat, Ruth and Hans!

      This looks like someone who might be sharing the sea of sky pasture with our friend there.

      I think your Squirrel might have landed on my head while I was giving myself a haircut, Hans. At least that’s the excuse I’ve been using.

      Keelin, beauty of a hairdo.  No hat required.

      Hans, your squirrel might need some sunflower seeds.
