Frozen Fox

On February 10, 2019 my daughter and I were having what was our last skate of the season, and we happened across this red fox, frozen in place in the ice. It apparently died while trying to cross open water during a brief thaw on the pond, then was frozen in place, creating this eerie yet beautiful scene.
