Ice-embedded leaves, Iowa City

I love it when leaves and other organic material shapes the ice that it becomes embedded in.  I'm not quite sure of the mechanism, but I imagine that it has to do with the leaves absorbing sunlight that is reflected off of non-covered sections of the light, thus warming just enough to eventually melt these oh-so-precise embossings of themselves into the ice.
