Mesmerizing footage shows frozen puddle thawing under it’s frozen surface

This mesmerising footage shows the natural phenomenon of a frozen puddle thawing from the bottom up - making it look like there are alien creatures moving beneath the ice. Award-winning author Elizabeth Rose Murray, 43, came across the startling scene as she looked for inspiration while walking near her home. A crack of running water at the base of the frozen puddle had, combined with the warmer temperature of the ground, caused the ice to melt from underneath. The weird, but wonderful phenomenon, gave the impression of creatures moving below the water's surface as Elizabeth captured it on film.
