Macro on Monday - Guess What

Aha! I get the gold star for last week's puzzle picture as no one managed to identify it.
My thanks to all those who attempted a guess.

It was a very close view of the head of a match.

And now for the new close up to identify:


Clue: It could heat up at the same time as last week's object.

No prizes. Just a bit of fun.

I really must catch up on some other blogs today. I spent a lot of time over the weekend trying to make some sense of the C++ programming language. It's many years since I use Sinclair Basic, then BBC Basic and finally Agfa Basic (Atari ST) but now I want to be able to have a play with the modern generation of programmable microprocessors as used in the Arduino kits. I want to build some more versatile methods of controlling the camera for nature photography so I think I will be needing a new bottle of aspirin to cure the headaches when I start banging my head on the wall! 


  1. Well I'm not doing too well here. In for a penny....................A candle wick.
    I used C+ many years ago and found a compiler for it which took much of the pain away.

  2. Hello Adrian. The compiler for the Arduino is fine. Trouble is it looks at things more logically than I do ;)

  3. I'm with Adrian on this; a candle wick.

    Aaaaa, C++. Yup, you've lost me lol

  4. Well, we were no 'match' for you last week, John, so congratulations on your gold star ;) My first thought for this week's puzzle was an ember of sorts. I didn't even think of a candle wick until I read the comments. I have no idea if you have a wood/coal fireplace, so a candle wick does make sense. However, since it didn't cross my mind, I'll stick to a fireplace ember.

  5. Adrian is probably right. ;-) But in the spirit of coming up with something original I suggest pipe tobacco.


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
