Valentine's day snowflake

I already posted this amazing hexagonal plate crystal: Frozen hearts almost a year ago, and this is post-processed version, with slightly better contrast and colors:

This heart-like pattern inside of snowflake really rare thing: i have seen it only twice in all of my photos, taken during 8 winters. In January 2016, i was lucky to take photo of another snowflake with six tiny hearts, connected to corners of hexagonal center:
