Macro Monday Mystery

Apparently, I only have time to post once a week, which means that from now on all of my posts will be Macro Monday posts! This week, I have even less time than usual, since I am very busy watching the Vancouver Winter Olympics. I might even have to pop down there sometime next week. So, I shall post a photo and then it is up to you, dear readers, to do the work.


The question is, what is it?

Answers on a postcard, please - or you can just send your answer via the comments. Since I don't think that this is too difficult (well, I wouldn't, would I, since I know what it is), I shall not be giving any clues just yet. If no one gets it by tomorrow, I shall give a few hints.

For more Macro Monday, go here.

Bubble wrap?
Enjoy the Olympics.

All the coal from Christmas stockings collected over the years? Looks like leather. Nice shot BTW.

Carletta said...

I'm thinking the bottom of a tennis shoe?

Heather said...

well since I doubt you got that close to an alligator - I have no idea.

Gel said...

rubber sole? Or closeup of machinery of some sort like on a bicycle?
Enjoy the Olympics!

Grandad said...

I would have guessed a crocodile, seeing as you can't have photographed the Wife's heels.

Baino said...

I think it's a lizard. Looks like a shingle back . .c'mon now. Put us out of our misery!

Colleen said...

Looks like alligator skin to me.

Cortes said...

Initially I thought an alligator, but that is likely what you wanted us to think. Eliminate that one!

So I thought lizard, but we always seem at odds as to what is and what isn't a lizard, so I will not suggest that, just to avoid another debate. So what is left?

Turtle.

Too bumpy for snake skin. Probably a lizard? Maybe one of those mosquito-eating little critters that poop all over your floors. LOL!

If that's so, it's a GREAT picture!

The skin of a crocodile!


Ceiling Fan

I vote crocodile tail.

Hi All,

Crocodile is close, but who in their right mind would want to get that close to a crocodile? Cortes is actually the closest........

Cortes said...

A rose by any other name is still a rose. A turtle by any other name is a tortoise. Closer?

quilly said...

Tortuga!

Baino said...

Can I have another guess? Perhaps the leg of a Galapagos Tortoise? Well maybe not a leg but the skinny bit.

Sistertex said...

Turtle or Reptile appendage!

(I'm pretty sure it is not a cobblestone road!) ;)

Don't Bug Me! said...

Cortes: You are so smart :o)

Quilly: If my spanish is correct, then so are you. Well done!

Baino - BINGO! It is the front leg of a giant Galapagos tortoise. You see, they are easy to get close to, and, unlike crocodiles they don't have humungous teeth and cannot move very, very fast.

Sistertex: No, definitely not a cobblestone road.

Suldog said...

A tortoise leg? Wow. I would have bet a goodly amount on that being alligator hide.

Don't Bug Me! said...

Suldog: You would a poorer man if you had!

Jay said...

A Galapagos tortoise! Well, you fooled most of us! LOL!

Good one!

Great photo. I never would have guessed that one correctly.
