Sundog, Hungary ~ Imaged by Ágnes Őri at Jobbágyi, Hungary. Another ice halo captured during 'European Union Halo Saturday' 27th February 2010. ©Ágnes Őri, shown with permission.

Ágnes's sundog (parhelion) shows the typical colours well.  There are strong reds and straw hues tapering away to weaker greens with a hint of blue.

Like the rainbow, sundogs are a minimum deviation phenomenon and all but the reds are overlapped by other colours .
