    OK shameless theft of idea from another forum. Somewhere I go to read but have never posted.

    There is a thread in 'this other place' where people post a macro and others try to guess what it is.

    If you get it right you then have to post the next macro to be identified. Rules are all a bit loose but if you can't come up with a macro shot then someone else can jump in with your permission. If its impossible to guess then it just kinda starts again by agreement. All sort of make it up as you go along....

    Anyway if anyone here is interested I'll start the ball rolling with an easy one I just took.

    No photoshop anything - just a bit of cropping, Exact answer required.

    Oh and it kinda all falls flat if you don't stick your nose in here now and again to say right or wrong :rotfl:

    Knew it was too easy!

    Thought the colours from the hologram might make it harder.

    Your go :)

    Wish I hadn't guessed now. Have spent the last 45 mins trying to take shots and have realised that the macro mode on my IXUS 430 is very poor. I can't get close enough to make it a difficult shot. Anyway, here is mine. Can you guess what it is yet...?
