Take a look at this photo. It's not super quality but something caught my eye. It was shot in 2003 on Minnetonka right at first ice. The ice is razor thin and the waters only a foot deep. But look close and you'll see tiny little air bubbles trapped in the ice that perfectly outline the rock that lies below it. Weird huh? What do you think would cause that?

I have no idea what would cause that but it is cool. I've never seen anything like that before.

I am guessing it's some cool physics coming into play here. Being simply a Yeti I wouldn't know where to start....

But the picture is further proof that just when you think you have seen it all in nature....someone has something new.

Thanks for pic!

That is a neat picture but I have never seen that before and could only guess why. Maybe sunlight heated the rocks.

If I had to guess, decayed algae on the rocks, and the bubbles are methane? Or some other gas from the decay?

I would guess the oxygen being produced by the algae, but I have no idea. You should have lit a match to see if it was methane grin

Normally you would be correct, I would be hard pressed to agree with you but I do think you are correct on this one! Oh well always a first DD gringringrin

I am wondering if maybe it was windy in the days before and maybe some small air bubbles were trapped in the algae on the rocks. Then as it calmed down the bubbles were released and got trapped.

Similar theory to the DD, but a bit different. Anyone's guess really.

    • I'm looking for suggestions on a dog blind for duck hunting. My son wants to train his lab pup to stay in a blind in the duck boat anybody have any suggestions on brand or what to look for.  
    •   Gee whiz, it took me 2 seconds to google it. Looks like it was The Hill.
    • Sure puts the Ion to shame.... 
    •     You're ok with the status quo, too, but you have never provided any rational explanation as to why.      
    • I am flying from Phoenix to Omaha tomorrow evening.  I do not remember the last time i drove in snow.  hopefully it will be plowed by the time i get in at 730pm.  
    • What's wrong with letting adults decide what they do with themselves and letting states make the calls when necessary?    As to your second paragraph, does oxycontin get treated like ibuprofen? Are all legal drugs treated the same or are there standards used for certain types of legalized drugs?    At the core I don't like the feds involved in regulating drugs,guns,tobacco etc but if I have to choose between making them illegal,which sends them underground where there is no consistency, no standards, no way if the consumer being able to know what they are buying and legalizing them where at least they are subject to some measures of consistency in manufacturing then I would grudgingly take the latter.    You always seem to get hung up on this all or nothing kick when there are other options that can be used.     
    • Well I went to the dealership to order my vinyl and lucky I did, one of the salesman told me the precut wood I had ordered is sized for carpet and not vinyl. If I use the vinyl I'd have a quarter inch gap or so in between the pieces...So now I'm gonna go with carpet which sucks since I had my heart set on vinyl...oh well
    • By the time the wedder morjits are done hyping it down here, it'll be the storm of the century, with thousands stranded and the National Guard dropping supplies from C-130's., pulled down the runway by herds of reindeer. 
    • I was up last weekend.  It was my 3rd trip of the year.  I canceled my rooms for my March trip.  Call the Hamilton House...2 rooms just opened up for the 8-11th of March.     There's a ton of Walleyes in LW, but debatable how many big ones.  Big fish seem to be in decline.  Pick any reason you want, but it's a fact.  The big fish are nowhere near as prevalent.  That doesn't mean you won't catch one...or multiple...but you're going to have to work.  If you're not in the fish, move.  If you find fish, but not bigger ones...move.   I'm a mover...I'll move 5 times in a day easy.  I know guys who will wait it out all day and they might be the guys who catch some big fish, but they're usually the guys who only catch a few eaters and nothing big.  just my opinion.  Good luck and above all, don't let all the fisherman completely devoid of courtesy be justification to abandon yours.
