Thanks Biff & Murry.

How did you keep them from melting while taking your photos?

I have been taking lots of pictures of frost that forms on the inside of the windows of my garage, where it is usually a little below 0 C, while outside it has been -10 C and colder.

This time, the snowflake was outside, while I took the shots through the double-glazed window while standing inside. Snowflakes don't usually stick to the window, but this one was very tiny - only about 2 mm across. Yesterday was a bit warmer than usual, a bit below 0 C outside, with the garage a bit above 0 C, so I guess the snowflake was picking up heat from the glass, causing it to melt.
