It is an insect, I hinted earlier by saying, "perhaps if you all start winging it, you may be able to get it."
Heres a larger crop, now surely this will help. :D

Ah! Bumble bee wing perhaps.

I caught the "winging it" comment..thus boomerang. Slow to pick up on some things. :)

But I was gonna guess mud!
Oh well - next one's from Fud -


yes, I made a (very) little poem to bump the thread, after doing another thread split :)
I'd do a Haiku, but frankly I'm not that talented

Looks like one of the original out-of-focus Hubble telescope images of Nebula Alpha-bp-2703. :D.

Okay...fud's image is the reflection of trees and sky in a bird bath...or not.

Fud is most sly.
His image a mystery.
How will today unfold?
 


Is that Haiku enough fother? ;)

Well it is a little blurry as it is a 100% crop of something taken hand held with the 100 macro.

Asher is moving in the right direction.
