Caption: Snowflake, computer artwork. Snowflakes are ice crystals that form under calm weather conditions when the temperature is near the freezing point of water. Snowflakes have six-fold symmetry, but due to slight differences in the conditions in which they form, no two snowflakes are identical. A wide variety of beautiful patterns are possible. The two basic patterns, which often combine as here, are plate crystals (flat, at centre of snowflake) and dendritic crystals (the branching tree-like patterns around the edges of this snowflake).
