This is amazing! How did you notice the snail in the icicle? I saw it because I could enlarge the photo. I also went on YouTube and watched a snail in hiding. Did you just take a photo of the suggestive icicle and see the snail after you printed it?

Is the mutt happy with the snow?

Bautiful crystalline structures,
and...
I much prefer to see a living dog, the other picture left me slightly traumatised.

Let me guess:
Three photographs by Mrs. Doubtful, and the hound shot by the master of this blog.

A pleasant start into a new week to all of you.

Claudia: The snail? I must look again... (And the mutt loves the snow!)

Chris: I'm sorry if you found the picture of the dead dog slightly traumatic. But as the corpse was roughly the same size and shape as my own dog, I found it very affecting, which is why I wanted to share it. A memorial for the abused beast, perhaps...

Sean: Mrs Doubtful was decidedly comfortable in front of the fire while I risked chilblains to take all the above photos! (Chuckles to himself...)

Sean Jeating said...

Haha, D.E., thus all the accolade for you!

It's just I draw the wrong conclusion from your previous post, thinking that Mrs. Doubtful had been patiently waiting for 'her' droplet turning into (an) icycle(s). :)

I love the icicle photos. How dos the canine fellow enjoy the weather?

A Doubtful Egg said...

Sean: She probably would have, but it's far too cold! All the icicles pictured above are now long gone, as are the droplets. That's what's fascinating to me about them; they seem so permanent, but are so fleeting.

Jams: The hound loves the snow!

Claudia: I just realised I mislabeled this post. I'd meant to write "Snow" but the predictive texting put in "Snails" instead! I've changed it now...

Whatever you wrote, Egg, there was a snail in one of the icicles. I saw it when I enlarged the photo. Then I went on YouTube, and I watched a snail in hiding. And it confirmed what I saw. I'm glad the icicle has melted and the snail is now free. He had just been caught in a snowtorm and frozed. It could happen to anyone of us to turn out into a giant icicle, if we're not careful.

The word verification is readmi.
