This shot was taken by naturalist and wildlife photographer Emanuele Biggi at a pond in Aveto Regional Park in northern Italy. Thousands of frogs were frozen solid in the pond. “Sometimes climate change is striking in an odd way, surprising the frogs with extreme cold and ice while they’re already breeding into water,” Biggi wrote.
A user posted this to Instagram with the caption, “A hawk did this.” It was a very tidy kill with hardly any blood spatter. But why would the hawk just eat one ear and half of the rabbit’s face? His little snout is still intact.
This photo was taken at Lake Andes National Wildlife Refuge in South Dakota. While the fish look like they were frozen mid-jump, they had actually died earlier and were brought up to the surface of the water when it froze over.
