      I was thinking the same thing. I bought a calendar for a nerdy friend of mine (I'm one too) that is comprised of pictures of fractals. So precise, so mathematical, and yet poetically beautiful too.

            Beautiful pics. They make me want to pay better attention to my environment. I'm going to try and catch some snowflakes tomorrow and take a good look at them.

                Seeing this thread made me think about something I saw in how to actually "catch" a snowflake...

                now I am not sure if I remember the procedure correctly but am thinking someone else reading this might.

                You need super glue, some glass slides and snowflakes... glass slides and super glue must be just as cold/same temp as it is outside, when a snowflake drops on slide or you happen to "catch" it, put a drop of super glue on the flake and cover with another glass slide.

                I am a bit deliriously tired right now typing this but that's the basics anyhow... they are called "glass slides?" aren't they, the things one puts under a microscope??? LOL.
