More mystery – why are some on the tips and others aren’t? I’m hoping you’ll uncover the answers soon…

Maybe the twigs bent at different angles into the water???? Or what Dr. Baird said in the next post.

I see we share a fascination with ice! 🙂 I just wanted to add to Dr. Baird’s explanation that from what I’ve observed from watching these kinds of ice developments on a pond in Maine, the wind plays a role in the shaping of the ice formations during the partially melted phase. You can practically watch the “sculpting” as it’s happening.

I’ve been spending winters in Florida for the last decade or so, but this year I started coming back early. I have to say that I have missed photographing ice and snow and was overjoyed to see these ice treasures when I got back to Ohio. I had not thought about wind playing a role. Thanks for your contribution to solving this mystery.
