An Ice Centipede

Wow Bernie, it takes little imagination to visualize what you have interpreted of this image

I will ask the viewer to do a little work - allow one's imagination free reign and take the mind's eye, and the mind itself back, way back to eons before the dinosaurs when our planet was "Snowball Earth". Living 'Ice Centipedes' similar to this perhaps flourished alongside their close cousins Ice Worms (Mesenchytraeus solifugus) who are still with us today. Today, I re-visited the spot where I found this specimen but alas, the rising temperature overnight has claimed another victim.
