Macro on Monday - Guess What


Last week's mystery photo seems to have been very hard as no one managed to work out that it was a close shot of roots. To be exact the roots of a Cymbidium Orchid which was in urgent need of splitting and re-potting. Something I should really have done last Spring when it didn't flower for the first time in years. It is quite an effort to cut through that tangle of old roots and I end up having to use a freezer knife which has a saw blade type edge. I ended up with three pots which should start to produce flowers again in a couple of years time.

Thank you to those who did make a guess.

I am running out of ideas and things to take macro shots of so this week here is a complete object.
I wonder whether you can work out what it is.
Guess What:
Including the small ring it measures 7cm (just under 3 inches) in height.

Please leave any guesses in the comments.
They will be revealed, along with the answer, next Monday.

No prizes, just my congratulations and possibly a virtual Midmarsh Gold or Silver Star.


  1. I am baffled again but I want one. Is it for keeping flies away?

  2. it's got to be some sort of light bulb. but i'm not sure if it is camera related or perhaps a lamp for a yard decoration?


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
