breaking the winter ice

There has been a little creek frozen over not far from my home. With the rising temperatures (and the draining of water too it seems) the ice cover collapsed the other day and showed me what was beneath.

the entire underside was filled with hanging curtains of ice ribbons. Up close they were quite beautiful.

I could theorize about how it formed (probably grew from when the water was closer to the ice) but that doesn't make it any less beautiful.

sticking my camera under the ice to look around shows it to be quite a delicate exquisite palace for a mouse.

Just thought I'd share some of the beauty which normally goes unseen.

901how great. It must have formed somehow as the water level dropped.
