Sculptures in Ice

I couldn’t stay home today knowing that the pond is finally freezing over. Tonight it might even snow, so I wanted to take a few more photos of strange ice formations before that happened.

Nature formed its own natural vases for these stalks, almost like blown glass.

I didn’t get a photo of it, but as I was taking photos of leaves entombed in ice a tiny muskrat swam by under the ice. It was awesome! At first I thought it was a fish going past, but then I saw a long rat-like tail! At least I think it must have been a muskrat… hmmm… ?

I was all alone except for this ruddy duck that watched me from his not-yet-frozen part of the pond.

About

Welcome, I'm Lynne. You know me better as a 'new' Jersey Girl. But now I've moved once again, this time to North Carolina. Here I write about my thoughts, good food, and of course, dogs.
