Thank you all for your kind words. It's cloudy today so I doubt I get a chance today to take another. Unfortunately, my inexpensive mylar solar filter works well to get this kind of exposure, but getting a photo of a flare requires taking a photo at the right time and having special filters like an H-Alpha filter which are quite expensive. Thanks again!
