Macro Monday : Mystery # 10

I know, I just did one of these, but as I was scanning through some of my photos I noticed this one. It is an unusual photo and I think that it will be quite the challenge for you this week. It almost looks unreal, or perhaps it looks so macro that it could be a component of one of your cells. Now, while I do like really macro and I like to get really close, even I don't have an electron microscope at home! So trust me, you do not need a microscope to see one of these.

Anyhoo, here is your photo:


Since I did not put much effort into this week's photo, I don't really expect you to either. I shall also give you a few clues.........

You will definitely not find this in your garden, now or at anytime of the year, no matter where you live.

Try looking at around 60fsw, and remember, don't stay down too long and never, ever hold your breath on the way up!

Oh, and just so that you know, fsw does not stand for friction stir welding, female sex worker or Fox Sports World!

Such a shallow dive, but such a great photo! I will guess a coral. Looks like raspberries.

Nice shot ..I'm guess a close up of a sea fan/ soft coral.

Well I am so thoroughly mystified that I'm not even gonna guess! I'll be back to discover the answer.
