Fire Dragon
China, on Aug 9, 2003

The persona has its own flare.
Compare to August 3 and August 6 and other August 8 photos. Here again the Fire Dragon within the Occulted Sun is revealed by the welders lens, which block the Sun’s glare. This Fire Dragon has its own lens flare, a relection of the persona and tail. If an object has a lens flare or reflection, it is not itself a lens flare! In addition, the tail is not symetrical, which lens flares are.
