This is medium size snowflake, around 4 millimeters in diameter. It have short arms with complex pattern, and almost empty inner area with simple central hexagon. It was captured on large sheet of glass with LED back light, using Canon Powershot A650is and additional lens Helios 44, reversely mounted in front of camera's built-in optics. 8 identical RAW photos, taken as fast series, was averaged for better SNR (signal/noise ratio) of this picture.
