Snowflake macro: cloud wheel

Another crystal of my favourite snowflake type - simple hexagonal plates. I like unusual pattern near the edges. This crystal was around 1,5 mm in diameter. 8 shots averaged to boost signal-to-noise ratio. Glass background with backlight, additional lens Helios 44M-5, january 2013, Moscow.
