Snowflake

Another tiny hexagonal plate snowflake (lesser than 2 mm). 8 serial shots averaged to boost signal-to-noise ratio. Background: dark woolen fabric, natural light (gray clouded sky), external optics Helios 44M-5, january 2013, Moscow.

 

Interesting: Kenneth Libbrecht grows in laboratory artifical snow crystal with similar pattern, though his crystal is perfect, compared to this "wild snowflake". I highly recommend to view Kenneth's artifically grown crystals album.
