Closeup of a snowflake

An unimaginably huge number of these intricate, fascinating little structures fall from the sky every year, yet normally we only see the structures made when trillions of them stack together. There's an amazing amount of detail on this one snowflake, and it melted less than a minute after this picture was taken.
