A Little Gem

  11. Is that a REAL snowflake??? It looks like glass. You can tell I don't see snow but once every 10 or so years...and then not a lot of it.

  12. Stewart: You could barely see it with the naked eye.
    Ms. Davis: Yes, it is a real snowflake! I've taken snowflake shots for the past three years or so and I always think they look like old fashioned crystal jewelry. :)

  13. Wow! I had no idea that it was possible to capture a snowflake in such great detail with our mostly pedestrian cameras. I'm going right now to see if you tell us what camera you use!

  14. Wow! I had to wonder, too, if it was a real snowflake. It looks like an ornament we would have out at the holidays. - And I am VERY accustomed to snow, as I've lived in it all my life 6 months out of the year.
    I've never seen one shaped like a "picture" snowflake before!
