    We got some good snow here in Indiana (finally) a couple weeks ago and these little guys were stuck on the glass of my kitchen door. :-D

    Wow!
    I have not even SEEN a snowflake like that, ever. I know they're supposed to look like that, but...

    ...oh, how I now wish I could get closer to things! I can do x4 macro photos, but it's not nearly enough!!

    Wow ... me too... really never saw a snow flake in that manner. I like the first one but wish it were a little sharper.

    Wow, thatnks for the great comments, everyone! :)

    I was pretty pleased with how these shots came out, as well. I set my Canon 300D for the highest resolution, set up the tripod, put on the +7 closeup filter (stacked +1, +2, +4), and shot away. I used a cable release so that the camera wouldn't shake on the tripod. Then in PS I cropped waaaaay down, enhanced the contrast, and sharpened them up some.
