Snow crystals which fell on February 4th, 2001. No two crystals are identical: all are examples of the delicacy and endless variety of nature. Photographing snow crystals takes a lot of patience and practice - yet quick handling, since the crystals will melt very easily. Photo taken February 4th, 2001, in Wijdenes, The Netherlands.
