Icy Creek Pt 1; Natural Lenses

Frozen Ice Lens on Leaf

Roger and I went for a long walk near my parent’s house in Columbia, MO. Being the end of the year, it is freezing cold and still. Ideal weather to produce ice on the ponds and creeks of the area.

While walking on the creek, we noticed that a couple of leaves had formed little balls of ice on the end of them. The ice was perfectly clear and the shape was quite regular.

Almost lens like, really.

Sure enough. It did act as a lens!

These were shot with a 100mm macro lens on a Canon 7d Mk II (my christmas present).
