These are real snowflakes, photographed by Alexey Kljatov with a macro lens. Truly beautiful stuff in this collection. As a bonus, he’s posted high-res versions too, and they’re all free to download. source

Time for me to get a re-feel.

Herbert James Draper (English, 1863-1920)
The Lament for Icarus, 1898
