Macro on Monday - Guess What


It's been one of those traumatic days but more of that later.

Having had a think about this year's puzzles I have decided to return to using macros so here is the first which I hope will be a gentle start to the new season. They won't be stacked macros as I think the out of focus bits will add to the puzzle element.

Guess What:

As aways - Please leave any guesses in the comments.
They will be revealed, along with the answer, next Monday.
No prizes, just for fun and maybe a virtual Midmarsh Gold or Silver Star.

This morning I had just started building up a small collection of new macro photos when Penny, who had been chasing round the garden let out a loud cry. I went rushing out to find she had caught herself on something and unzipped a few inches of her fur coat. Obviously that meant a rapid call to the vets and a flying visit. She was seen immediately by Mike and kept in for work to be done. I have just checked with them and she is doing fine, all stitched back together and teeth cleaned while she was under a general anaesthetic. She has eaten a little and will be staying the night so they can keep an eye on her as the practice has vets and nurses on duty there 24 hrs a day.

Then the company I had ordered some stuff from (mentioned on my Midmarsh Pi blog) finally got round to refunding my money as the goods have never arrived. It was all done through PayPal but the company did it the wrong way and I was charged for receiving the money. Naturally I phoned PayPal who were extremely good, worked out what had been done wrong (they had sent me money instead of reversing the original transaction) and put it all right then and there so I got all my money back.

I'm just hoping, with about 4.5 hrs left of today that things don't come in threes as I have had enough excitement for one day!


  1. cactus plant. Poor Penny! Hope you both survive the trauma intact. Cheers.

  2. i'm so sorry about penny! glad you were able to get her in right away and they were able to stitch her up. poor girl!

    as for the guess, i'm going to have to go with a cactus.

  3. Hope Penny will be ok. Do you know what she caught herself on?

  4. Wish Penny all the best. Poor dog.
    Did she catch herself on the cactus or perhaps it isn't a cactus.

  5. Not sure of the macro John, but I hope Penny makes a quick and full recovery. Must have been a scary moment for you.

  6. No Bonnie. I haven't been able to work out what she caught herself on.
