    I have something really special for you this time, I call it the close-up of ANGEL FUR. It's up to you to guess what it actually is:

    4314347865_c214303860_o. ANGEL FUR by Milan Jovanovic, on Flickr

    Good luck!

    P.S. The usual blurb:

    How this is played? Each member gets one guess. The answer will be revealed on the following Tuesday. The first correct guess has the honor of submitting the image for the next challenge. Sometimes there will be more than one thing in the photo or more than one way to accurately describe what the photo represents. The original poster will be the final judge of who is "most correct".

    Whatever it is, it's my favorite image in this series so far.

    similar to Marlof's guess, but different enough. I think it's one of those rubbbery, gel-like squishy stress-relief balls for squeezing.

    Looks to me like a cluster of eggs from a marine animal - fish, octopus, frog. Agree it's a very mysterious photo.

    I'm with the ball idea, but I think it's one that you put in a washing machine to aid agitation.

    I'm back from a business trip, sorry for the delay. What is the procedure when nobody got it right?

    It is up to you to judge who is "closest" to being correct. And I know you are many time zones ahead of me, but the answer is revealed on Tuesday. So there's still some time for someone to get it right ;)

    And I could swear the last time you shared this image, you even told us what it was. I remember loving the photo..... but I don't remember what it is. :blush:

    Well, it was a trick question. Or a punch bellow the belt, depends how you look at it :)

    I don't think there is a way to guess it correctly, and indeed nobody did.

    Here's the making of:

    full.

    full.

    full.

    full.

    So it was an inverted image of plain ol' pack of toothpicks after all :)

    Because I presented the impossible task and nobody was closer than the other, I decided not to measure your answers but chose KillRamsey. Instead of guessing, he played on his charm :)

    Good luck with next round!

    I am glad that I missed this (I would have never guessed!!). ;-)
    But it is a great, fantastic, beautiful photo! (and challenge!).
    Great work!

    I guess a compliment can go a loooong way. :)

    Ok, I sure as heck wouldn't have gotten that. I'll create a fresh image ASAP.
