Photographer Diana Rebman captures a midair moment
ON A BITTER SUB-ZERO DAY in Hokkaido, Japan, when all nearby water was frozen solid, this tiny long-tailed tit found a midair drink by nibbling the tip of an icicle. “This behavior just fascinated me,” says photographer Diana Rebman. “I’d never seen anything like it.” Rebman spent several hours over two days watching long-tailed and marsh tits visiting the site. “They were very nicely choreographed,” she recalls. “They would sit on branches all around and take turns. For these tiny birds to live in that environment, I guess they have to be very creative.”
