The Diamond Dragon

I traveled from Western PA to Southern Illinois to be in the path of totality during the Aug 21 Solar Eclipse. While photographing the transit, a cloud threatened to spoil the event and I ended up capturing the passing clouds during the diamond effect of the eclipse. I was surprised when reviewing my photos to see that the clouds formed what appears to be a dragon wrapped around the moon and sun.
