This is one of my all-time favorite pics. I took it in May of '03. These particular kinds of clouds are called mammatus clouds, as you may have inferred from the title. They're called that because they resemble mammaries of animals. Like a cow udder. One of these days, this picture is going to win me a prize.

Mammatus Clouds also known as breast clouds or mammatocumulus, are clouds that float with pouches at the bottom.

Excellent shot. These clouds are magnificent. :) I like how you have the trees in there as well. Gives some perspective and indication of the size of the clouds.
