Macro on Monday - Guess What

In response to hundreds (three actually, but who's counting) of requests for some puzzle macro or micro photos of objects this is the first. Some, like this one, will be taken with the 350D fitted with bellows to get closer shots. Others will be taken through the microscope with a DCM510 microscope camera. As in one of my favourite bygone radio programmes objects may be animal, vegetable or mineral in origin.

This should be relatively easy to recognise -


The full object will be revealed next Monday along with a new puzzle picture. No prizes for guessing correctly, except an honourable mention next week.


  1. Simple got it straight away.....It's one of those.

  2. right. Of course, it's easily recognized by you because you know what it is ;)

    I wonder if it's some kind of fruit, with casing or salmon with skin ...

    Hint, please :)

  3. You have me stumped, at least for the moment! I am going to give it some more thought, maybe sleep on it ...

  4. Hi Keith - Glo was on the right track with her first thought.

  5. HI Glo. Stick with your first thought.

  6. Hi Wilma. See Glo's first thought for a hint.

  7. A stab in the dark..........a conker?

  8. To Autumn, 1820 by John Keats

    Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
    Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
    Conspiring with him how to load and bless
    With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;
    To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees,
    And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;
    To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells
    With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,
    And still more, later flowers for the bees,
    Until they think warm days will never cease,
    For Summer has o’er-brimm’d their clammy cells.

    A dried up apple?

  9. Keith & Glo - will let you know on Monday ;)


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
