Detail of mermaid statue, western (Jellicoe) fountain, Trafalgar Square, Westminster, London, UK

I don't think I'd ever really registered that a tiny dolphin leaping from the clam shell at the base of Sir Charles Wheeler's composition itself spouts water.

Note that the ridge of clear ice is only supported by a sleeve frozen around the lower jaw – it doesn't touch the dolphin's underside, presumably having melted away from the sunlit metal.
