Photographer_Wilson "Snowflake" Bentley

Wilson A. Bentley adapted a microscope to a bellows camera and became the first person to photograph a single snow crystal in 1885. He would go on to photograph over 5000 snowflakes during his lifetime making the discovery in his small rural town of Jericho, Vermont, that "no two snowflakes are alike". Not only is this interesting but appropriate for this time of year. See more of his collection HERE at, and more here at the Buffalo Museum of Science.
