Snow flakes while they last

I have been trying really hard, but it always snows at night or when it's too warm.
While shooting emerging tulips today, there was a heavy flurry. It was too warm (-5C) to safely isolate the flakes, but too windy (30-40km/hr) to keep my eyes working, so I couldn't get the focus right. I posted these since they may be the last this season. Thanks for looking. Debbie

Superb shots Debbie, I only ever find refrozen crystals myself.

Lovely work Debbie.

I have tried these and really appreciate how difficult that is.

Great work, what magnification are these shot at?

Many thanks.
The quick answer is about 1x.
The long answer is that, I used a 100mmL with the 36mm extension tube, initially set at closest focus length (so magnification should be 1.5x or so) hand held. But I had to keep switching to fresh snow (really quickly before it melted). I was awkwardly crouching on my flower bed trying not to step on the new shoots, and I ended up using the focus barrel to pull back. I couldn't get the distance from the exif data.
I cropped and then rescaled before posting. For my curiosity, is this something I should mention whenever I post?
Debbie
