The first photographs of snowflakes

This is Wilson A. Bentley, self-educated farmer from Jericho, Vermont, photographer and lifelong lover of snow.  Bentley spent over a year experimenting with different ways of taking photographs through a microscope, becoming the first person to successfully photograph a single crystal of snow in 1885.  Bentley photographed more than 5,000 snowflakes in his lifetime, coming to the conclusion that all snowflakes are unique.
