Otter with his head through the ice
Whilst he looks like he may have lost his head, this otter was having the time of his life. His lake was frozen over and he is standing here on the ice in a puddle of melted water, and he had spent ages trying to break through. He managed to make a hole big enough for his head, and plunged his face into the water to see if the rest of him could fit... which it couldn't!
