There were some great guesses, but no-one mentioned the specific word I was looking for, frost.

Congratulations to Holly from Earth to Holly who correctly identified the frost crystals. The photos are taken at 25 times magnification :-)

I knew there was something a little more to these pictures than the obvious, but I wasn't quite picking it up. Now that I know what they are, the picture is even more interesting.

Happy New Year! Thanks for reminding me how cold it is outside. Actually these are much more impressive than the dirty snowbank out front of my house. Keep sharing your great photos.

Thanks, I wasn't sure if anyone would be interested in extreme close ups :-) I should have mentioned the green background is a leaf.

I have some good news, my home broadband will be setup within a few days :-)
