Macro on Monday - Guess What

gold starA full house for last week's Guess What. Congratulations and a virtual gold star to TexWisGirl, Bonnie, Adrian and Shirley who all correctly identify a bird feather. I have no idea which bird shed it except that it was a small one.

A different way of presenting this week's puzzle object. Today I found an interesting free iPhone app - SymbolGram - which will work on the iPad though the results are low quality. The app can use all sorts of shapes to mask photos. There are over one hundred to choose from. Photos can be rotated and resized, text can be added as can a few choices of background colour. I hope that an iPad HD version will be made as I found it real fun to use. The app is supported by advertising at the bottom of the screen and doesn't seem too distracting.

Anyway - here are a few different views of the same creature as produced in the app.
Guess What sort of creature I have hidden:

No prizes for a correct guess, just for fun.


  1. So neat! I want to say a lady bug, or beetle of some sort.

  2. i would definitely say butterfly, but not sure what type. maybe peacock?

  3. I will give this a whirl and say Five Spot Ladybird.

  4. Yes, I can definitely see you're going to have fun with that John. My guess is a Small Tortoiseshell butterfly :-)

  5. I often visit your lovely blog but haven't commented until now :) Just couldn't resist this macro "challenge". Am guessing a Small Tortoiseshell Butterfly?

    1. Ragged Robin: Many thanks for visiting and taking part in the Guess What.

  6. I blew's a peacock butterfly.


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
