Macro Monday #3

*Ding ding ding*

We have a week #2 winner! Woooo! None other than my very own mama. Yes, she won fair and square. She was not in on it nor was she present at the time the photo was taken. I guess living on the coast helps though, since...

"It looks like it may be seaweed or algae with some broken sea shells."

... is exactly right. I believe it is some kind of algae or moss growing on a rock that Dustin and I found down at the bay. The little white things are indeed broken pieces of shell.



You're all winners in my book though just for playing, and some of you had quite the entertaining answers. *grin* Please, keep them coming.

Here is this week's photo. Something a little red to get you into the holiday mood...




Oooh. The intrigue! Can you outsmart my macro?

Let me know if you participate with your own close up shot on your blog!

Have fun and good luck. *grin*

The obvious guess is a tomato. We'll see!

Ok, after much thought and deliberation, I think it is a photo taken just under the ridge of a cherry flavored Dum Dum sucker. : )

Sandy already stole my guess. Lollipop.

It looks like a candied or maraschino cherry to me :)

The Rock Chick said...

I'm late and it's already been guessed but I think it's a lollipop, too!

Bethany said...

I was all excited that I had a guess this time around, but everyone else already said it. Lollipop. Yum!

Nope. You are all wrong. It is a very badly sunburned baby bottom! Crystal! Where did you find a baby with such a badly sunburned bottom at this time of year?
