No pics, but they look like this caused by the sun refracting through hexagonal shaped ice crystals.

I've just seen a sundog & it's thanks to the OP that I knew what it was!

Totally lovely - didn't last long & no time to get camera.

I 've just seen two sundogs - on each side of the setting sun at an equal distance from the sun but the sundogs themselves were not identical!
