Default each one unique

There were some snow flurries here last night and when I went to work this morning I found this on front porch. Shot with DL, kit lens and two close up filters.



Got to work and a black Honda had more on it and they looked like this:



Perhaps you have some to post? I've never seen them this clearly before.

I think it was because it was in the teens all night and the wind was blowing so most of the flakes didn't stick. I doubt I'll ever see this again.

Beautiful pictures! We don't get that kind of snowflake - ours are either so tiny or else they are the wet kind of snow that just clumps together.

Here's one more taken on a bush. It almost looks fake, but this is where it fell!

Don't get me wrong on this - and no offense meant, but I can't really believe that these are real. I mean... these are just too HUGE, right?

Or maybe I get the wrong impression on the size - how big (diameter etc.) you'd say were these?
