Macro on Monday - Guess What

gold star Congratulations and the virtual gold star to Wilma, Bonnie, Ragged Robin and Sue Garratt who all identified the Horse Chestnut seed, conker.


The reference to knotted string and knuckles was to do with the game of conkers played by children of all ages around the world. More information can be found on Conkers, How to Play This Traditional Game and a report on the World Conker Championships on the BBC News site.

More a close view than a macro this week.
Guess What:

Clue: Clean up arachnid traces.

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


  1. I'm sure I got last weeks correct. This is a feather duster. I enjoy Macro Monday. Yours is true macro, Some folk out there just take a close up of a brick or their foot or anything. Macro is hard work. I understand that Macro now goes from 1:1 to 10:1 and then it becomes Micro. I'll stick with the old 1:1 for macro.

    1. Sorry Adrian. I didn't receive anything from you last week.

  2. It looks like a brush and from the clue I'm guessing it would be used to remove cobwebs so be attached to a long stick. I have a white one!

  3. gotta be a bottle brush. doesn't look like any 'duster' i've used to swipe spider webs.

  4. That looks like a bottle brush or a similar type of brush you are using to clean up after spider visits!

  5. Its a brush I think of some sort? Looks too coarse for a "feather" duster looks more like a bottle brush??? Sorry a poor guess this week!


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
