Photo of the Day

an extremely close-up image of an individual snowflake

A single snowflake, captured in extreme detail, by photographer Alexey Kljatov, who explains: "I capture snowflakes at open balcony of my house, mostly on glass surface, lighted by LED flashlight from opposite side of glass, and sometimes in natural light, using dark woolen fabrics as background." There are so many more stunning images at the link, as well as additional information on how he shoots the photos.
