Macro on Monday - Guess What

Once more my congratulations and a   gold star  go to Anon in Minnesota, Adrian, Jan, Keith and Wilma who correctly identified the developing frog spawn in last week's mystery photo.



The photo was taken late in the day and the spawn appeared brown under the low angle of sunlight. With all the warm weather here in the past week many of them are now freely swimming tadpoles.

I wonder what you will make of this week's puzzle photo
Guess What:

If you need a clue: It won't be slithering across the rockery.

No prizes - just for fun.


  1. Hello again, John - good clue! This one is easy as it can be seen in my garden too – one of my favs. It's the Snake's Head Fritillary Fritillaria meleagris.

  2. I would say it`s a Snakeshead Fritillary? A lovely flower.

  7. Hi John. A very late entry which I hope may just squeeze in in time!

    I had looked at it before but been baffled then while eating dinner the other evening it came to me in a blinding flash...a Snakes-head Fritillary!!...I hope :-)


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
