Very nice, Tom!

Is it my imagination, or are those crystals hollow?

Very cool and well done. It must take a lot of patience to work with that lens!
Good light,
Craig

Great close up of frost and the leaf. The ice crystals do appear hollow. very nice image.

The crystals are a mixture of hexagonal (hollow) pipes and solid needles - two of the many forms that ice crystals can take, along with hexagonally-edged plates, fern-like shapes, and snowflake-like shapes.
