People Are Just Finding Out That Snowflakes Look Exactly How You Think and They Are Losing Their Minds

I had no idea that there were people that have never seen what an actual individual snowflake looks like.

Did you know that there are many types of snowflakes too?

There is no exact number of different types of snowflakes, but science has focused on 35 different types and they are all very different.

It can be hard to see with the naked eye as you watch the snow falling from the sky, you need to catch some individual flakes to really see the beauty of the ice crystal formations.

There is a TikTok video that shows a great way to view these beauties in a way that many have not.

As a photographer I am always trying to get the perfect shots of individual snowflakes, nature truly is an artist.

But have you ever taken the time to really look and see what they actually look like up close?

You’ll want to get something dark, in the TikTok video, they used a black scarf and allowed the falling snow to drop a few flakes on it.

Then using their phone’s camera, they used the macro setting to zoom in to clearly see the individual crystals.

May sound crazy.. but I never thought snow flake actually looked like that
