I captured the snowflakes on a piece of black foam board. I had to take the pictures quickly because the flakes melted very rapidly. Since I had to stay outside, I had to shoot with one hand while holding the foam board with the other.

 

The flakes were very tiny - I would estimate no more than 1/8 inch across. I used the supermacro mode so the camera lens was right on top of them but, even so, I had to crop the pictures to about 10 percent of the original image to get these closeups.
