Macro on Monday - Guess What

There were a couple of close guesses for last week's Guess What.

It could well be described as embroidery Adrian. Glo was so very close in thinking it was part of Penny's reflective collar. In fact it was a different collar. I had bought this one as it looked very swish with its gold and purple.

Unfortunately having embroidery was not a good choice. I think it was a bit itchy in spite of having a silky lining. Every time she had a good scratch at it her claws caught and pulled the threads. In less that a week it looked really tatty. Lesson learned - for house collars stick to printed materials.

My thanks to those who were brave enough to have a guess.

On to a new Guess What.
Can you work out what this is part of?


Clue; What little boys are made of?

No prizes. Just for fun.


  1. It is definitely a bit of cinnamon stick. Unless it's something else.

  2. Either a slug or a snail, that's what little boys are made of! ;)

  3. Could it be part of a snake's body?

  4. 2 choices for a Gold star....a snail?.

  5. After last week's 'brave' effort, (very gallant of you to describe it thus John) but I think laughable is probably more accurate :-) I shall nevertheless see what sort of fool I can make of myself with this one! Well, I'm pretty sure it's not a 'puppy dog's tail' and as far as I can remember that leaves me with the choice between a 'slug and a 'snail' so after much deliberation, I am going to opt for part of a snail. I may well be wrong!!

    Interestingly, after writing the above I have looked the rhyme up and as is so often the case, it is not as clear cut as it first seemed. It appears there are variations, the one I am familiar with being the more 'modern' version but apparently earlier versions have substituted 'frogs', 'snakes' or 'snips' for 'slugs'. Thank you John, that's something new I've learnt today :-)


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
