I only took the photographs of these natural phenomena, I had no hand in creating them.
An icicle, approximately 50mm x 5mm, hanging by a spiders thread. How do you think this icicle formed?
Did the water run down the thread to the lowest point and form the icicle there?

|No. The icicle orginally formed on the roof edge trapping the thread inside. During a subsequent thaw the icicle broke free from the roof but was suspended by the thread.|

|Here is another bit suspended ice. It is a little easier to work out where this odd shaped piece came from. The suspension medium is dry grass.|
