Macro on Monday - Guess What

Last week's mystery photo got everyone stumped. The nearest was Ragged Robin with a mention of kettles and scale. You may not have come across this sort of item before unless, like me, you live in a hard water area which deposits layers of scale inside everything, especially where water is boiled. The item is a limescale descaler which is made of stainless steel. You put one in a kettle and it attracts much of the limescale instead of it being deposited on the inside of the kettle.

On to this week's mystery photo
Guess What:

Clue: This one won't lift any heavy weights.

No prizes. Just for fun.
Answers left in the comments will be revealed, along with the answer, next Monday.


  1. It's got to be a Crane Fly. Nice shot.

  2. don't know what kind of insect that is but it's a great macro shot!

    had never heard of the de-scaling thing! rather cool!

  3. Some sort of insect - maybe a lacewing
