A little winter magic: snowflake

Lands like a graceful swan,  shines like magical stardust, melts away like a forgotten dream. 

I finally figured out how to click  pictures of snowflakes –  with some borrowed equipment (extension tubes),  a  50mm lens (the nifty fifty), a tripod, a woolen glove, some patience and a ton of luck.

Well the equipment had to be returned, and also there is no flaky snow on the patio to click pictures of any more,  but winter is not over yet, and I am not giving up, next time, I hope I can get a better, more interesting shot.
