Sheep - and ice

These Jacob sheep live at the Botanic Garden in Durham. The light yesterday evening was not good, but if you look carefully, you can see a small black lamb lying down to the left of the centre tree. (No, it is NOT a furry lizard.)


And a little something for our overseas readers, who may be in hotter climes - even tropical:
This morning there was a strange ice formation on the bird bath, so I photographed it before it melted, from the side, from above, and as close up as possible. There was some melt water in the triangular cup shape of the top.

Has anyone any ideas how this odd shape might have been formed? (Other than aliens, of course.)

That's quite amazing, and I have absolutely no idea!! When I first saw the pics I thought you must have made this with a mould LOL! Time to call in Mulder and Skully ;-)
