Quoting ChrisAnthemum:
I don't think I've ever seen this. What causes it?

Update: Congratulations on the blue border; complementary color!


Chris
My thought was there was a leaf or something floating there that was a good absorber of solar energy, and the warmer water was leaching along the surface melting ice at its thinnest points - that doesn't explain the shape very well though. But I'm not going out to look :-)

How funny! How odd! I've only seen this where kids (or grown-ups) have thrown rocks into forming ice, never naturally! (maybe I just THINK people threw rocks, maybe it happens more often than we know!)

Great photo Timothy!
