Macro on Monday - Guess What

Congratulations to the four visitors who made a correct identification of last week's puzzle picture.

rectangle_New-Out99999   Moss From the Lawn

Gold stars for Keith, Glo, Matron and Wilma who identified it as moss. Like Matron I have plenty of it growing in my lawn. At least the Blackbirds have cleared it out from round the edges.

Now for the new photo - taken through the microscope. I'll tell you now it is not a coconut.
Strong lighting made it appear brighter than it really is.


Clue: When it's grown up it may help keep the doctor away.

No prizes - just for fun.


  1. I'll try again an apple pip.

  2. Yes, my first thought was an apple pip John. Not sure I would have got it (if I have got it!) without the clue though ;)

  3. Well a apple a day is said to keep the doctor at bay so presume this is the 'pip'.

  4. And pip pip from me, too! Amazing how things look in macro world.

  5. From the clue, I guess an apple seed (the american of "pip"), but the curvature is suspect; it looks very round. So maybe this shot is from the rounder end of the seed. Thanks for steering us away from coconut, because that is surely what it looks like!

  6. It looks like a very bad wig!.. it's not yours is it John?


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
