Lacy leaves

There something quite magical about large , fluffy flakes of snow silently descending during a still winter night.  Delicate crystals grab hold of each other and cling to anything and everything. Just outside my front door, knobs on the barren branches of the bridal spirea become temporarily adorned.

 


The flakes were laying so precariously, that while I dashed inside to grab a extension tube for my lense, gravity drew them to the ground!
Having shot at a rather high resolution, I was able to crop the image to show more detail. That’s when I noticed the single flake just below and behind the cluster pair.
Precarious indeed!
