A long-tailed tit looks to be suspended in the air as it takes a drink from an icicle. The thirsty bird flew up to the icicle hanging from a tree branch, and drank the water from the bottom as it melted.
The tits are known to take turns drinking from the icicles during the freezing winters. The photos were taken in sub-zero temperatures by George Swift in Hokkaido, Japan. SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.
