Ice feathers

From my first encounter this season with feathery ice crystals:

My observation in the past was I needed single-digit deg F temperatures before this sort of crystal forms next to a brook. It was warmer this time, in the lower teens (12 to 14 deg F). They’re amazingly delicate and beautful. This was taken with 2x magnification.
