Snowflake Bentley

Wilson Bentley, a real guy also known as “The Snowflake Man”, was fascinated with snow even as a young man. He started photographing individual snowflakes…and since no two are alike, you know that’s a lot of flakes! He collected snowflake crystals and worked on perfecting the technique to photograph them his entire life. Click on the link below to see some of his pictures. I really didn’t know that the snowflakes you cut out of paper…really do look like the real crystals. The flakes are really beautiful. Author: Jacqueline Martin Illustrator: Mary Azarian
