A snowflake, catching the reflection of a porch light in the evening.
One of those iconic shapes that you hardly ever see well enough to
check whether it resembles its archetype. This one comes fairly
close. I did a lot of moving around the camera and tripod by tiny
increments to locate a glinting snowflake and maximize the reflection
from its surface.
