Cotton Ball Clouds

I know the photo doesn't do it justice, but the clouds were so unusual this day that I couldn't resist taking a photo. I've always found cloud formations interesting and I wish I knew more about the different types. These clouds looked like hundreds of little cotton balls. I don't know what the scientific term for that is!

I am convinced that the poetry is always in the eyes of whom looks and I don't believe is possible to look at all this without feeling its sound.
From us, similar clouds, have popularly called "to small sheep". Good day.

I love the little, super-high-up little puff balls like that. I haven't see a sky like that in a long time.
