Sundog in Virga

I was just leaving for work when I noticed this large cloud hole. What really caught my eye was a flash of colour in the rightmost piece of virga falling from the cloud hole.

This was in the sundog position and briefly showed distinct colour on several occasions. The colours were very pure but unfortunately none of them lasted more than a few seconds.
