The image is used under a creative commons license with thanks to Rachel on Flickr. It shows a person holding two ice cream cones. They are visible from the shoulders down and appear to be holding one cone to their mouth whilst gripping the second cone, full of white, whipped ice cream. The person is wearing a short-sleeved grey T-shirt and has shoulder-length dark hair.
