An Unseasonal Visitor
You don't often stumble across snowmen of this quality by the seashore on the south coast of England at this time of year.
I snuck up on him this morning while he was out scavenging for carrots (luckily, I happened to be downwind of him). I managed to get this shot just as he spotted me - you can see how surprised and alarmed he is to see me. Unfortunately he scurried off into the long grass before I could get another picture.
Snowmen have been known to stop off here during their long annual migration to the Arctic, but I've never heard of a sighting as late as April.
