stamps2aWhat better time than the beginning of winter to take a closer look at snowflakes?

Thanks to Maggie’s Farm, I discovered Kenneth Libbrecht’s fabulous web site Libbrecht is one of the foremost experts on snowflakes. His pioneering snowflake photography was featured on this set of U.S. postage stamps issued in 2006. Austria also issued stamps adorned with his snowflake photos.

His Guide to Snowflakes page is particularly fascinating.
