Maine has had its share of snow this year.  The crisp snow and the trees create beautiful shadows in the woods on a sunny day. The days are getting longer so spring is on its way, but before it is here enjoy the snowflakes!

Snowflakes are a wonder. Each is an individual crystal just like gemstones. Here are a few links about snowflakes. 

Here are photos of snow crystals.

Wilson Bentley was one of the first to photograph snowflakes. This site dedicated to his work.
