From the time he was a small boy in Vermont, Wilson Bentley saw snowflakes as small miracles. And he determined that one day his camera would capture for others the wonder of the tiny crystal. Bentley's enthusiasm for photographing snowflakes was often misunderstood in his time, but his patience and determination revealed two important truths: No two snowflakes are alike; and each one is startlingly beautiful. Snowflake Bentley won the 1999 Caldecott Medal.
