I Heart Flare with All My Heart ...

And since it's Flare Week at I Heart Faces, and since it's Middle Dude's birthday, the two of us went out to chase some fantastic flare. Methinks we caught the motherload...

Holy cow - you did catch the motherload. I sure wish the sun would come out again in Ohio so I could practice my sun flare more! :(

This is just beautiful Susan!
