Sky Feathers

These Cirrus clouds at  sunset over Ladysmith are striking. This cloud formation is delicate, fibrous  with white filaments and white bands.  They have silky, hair-like appearance, tufts, lines across a clear sky,  and are sometimes called mares tails, painters’ brushes, hen feathers or spider  webs because of their appearance which is superbly illustrated in this image
