Backyard Minutiae

Macro Mysteries logo small

Are your eagle eyes feeling sharp today?  Are you up for the challenge of another photo guessing game?

In previous posts, I displayed macro shots of items in a room and subjects that were alive.  When I asked if anyone could identify the subjects of the photos, some of you were pretty good at figuring out the answers.

Since a few people seemed to enjoy the guessing game (and since any excuse to break out the camera brightens my day), I present another set of mystery macro photos for you today.  These were all taken in my parents’ yard.

So, would anyone like to identify these items?  I believe the last one could possibly stump you all!

(Sorry, the quality of some of these photos is not what I would like it to be.  My old camera is limited on the aperture settings and the number of pixels it can take.)

Have I stumped you with any of these photos?

Please share your guesses in the comments.  The answers will be revealed in a few days.  Thanks for playing along!
