    That is one weird looking tree, Lisa! Is it in your garden?

      Thanks Julie! I saw the “macro” when I was looking at the photographs and decided it would be fun to do something with it. Check out this post to find out what it is:

    That is very creative, Lisa! Amazing what one sees when looking closely.

      Thanks Reggie! I love macro photograph (although this was just a crop of a bigger photograph) – gives you a totally different take on ordinary things. Went to the library yesterday and found a nice book on macro photograph, so I’m going to be “studying” that during the next couple of weeks.

    Interesting! I’d have guessed animal. What sort of tree is it?

    I actually knew this. We have these in Australia.

      Ah yes, I thought you would! 🙂 You must have quite a lot of these in Queensland?

    I’m glad it’s a tree — from looking at the picture, I had it narrowed down to either a tree or a really scary animal.

    Totally fooled- thought it was a paw of some sort.

      When I saw the photo I was thinking hairy octopus tentacles. Check out this post to find out what it is:

        That’s totally what I see too – a shaggy octopus 🙂

    hmm. . . I could mistake that for one of your (used to be?) favourite topics 😉 Looks like a REALLY good macro of hairy spider legs to me.
