The image above shows a Cumulus-nimbus cloud that has an anvil top to it. The reason that can be identified is that the cirrus is in place above the center of the storm. The image below does not have an anvil top yet. The anvil top forms on CB clouds after they reach the height in the atmosphere where they begin to feel the upper level winds becoming too strong for them to continue development vertically.
