Are you getting tired of Macro Monday yet?
I’m not! I am having great fun!
Take a look at this one. Now, what on earth could it be? I suppose you want some clues.
Well, most often you’ll see these outdoors, though I’ve certainly seen them indoors in several different locations. This particular one is English, and I know you’ll find them in Europe. I don’t know if you’ll see just the same in other parts of the world, but pretty much everywhere has its own version – or many versions; they just look a bit different. Some are bigger, some are smaller, some a slightly different shape or a different colour. They are all basically the same thing, though, and serve the same purpose whichever version they are attached to.
Can you buy them? Well, yes, you can. Do many people buy them? No. Apparently schools do, sometimes, but I know of nobody personally who has made that purchase. And of course, you can’t just buy the bit you see here, you have to buy the whole thing! Tee hee.
Take a guess, and pop your answer in the comments. I’ll be back Tuesday evening (UK time) to add the answer to the bottom of this post in the form of a picture link.
Meanwhile, why not click over to Macro Monday 2 to see what other bloggers have found for you? They’re not all puzzles, but you’ll see some great macro photography!
It’s Tuesday evening here in the UK and here I am with the answer.Â Go here to see the full picture and be amazed!
The first one of you to get it right was Lori of What Remains Now.Â However, I am giving joint first place to Houndstooth because she guessed even more precisely AND had bought some at school!Â Well, well. Now I do know someone who has done that!
Also correct were Rob Lenihan, Birgitta, Hannah, Stewart and Susie Clevenger.Â Well done everybody!Â Now I know for sure not many of you have actually seen these things up close so it’s pretty damn good to get all these correct guesses.Â I’m impressed!
I must also just make honourable mention of Herman Turnip who guessed ‘dragonfly tail’.Â It’s not correct, but it sounds plausible, and it was in the right ball park, as they say.
