I think sundogs are always at an angle of at least 20º from the sun. This looks closer than that.

You could always buy a UV lens filter. They are dirt cheap and easy to find. If you don't wanna buy one, you could put your sunglasses in front of the lens. Or if you could use a welders mask, but then you'd have to use longer exposures and a tripod to get anything viewable.

I just don't see how a camera would capture objects like that w/o being visible to the naked eye(protected naked eye of course).

Were those pics taken with an IR filter?

Yes, it's a lens flare

For the record, a sundog looks like this:

No, it was just a regular digital camera.

To be fair this is an old thread and I appreciate everyone's input, whether it is indicative of something out of the normal or just a normal lens flare. Since taking this picture I have seen others like it, and do believe it was a lens flare. Apparently it happens with digital pictures frequently.
