Christmas Cat (includes answers to yesterday's macro quiz)

The only thing better than snuggling up to your prezzie… is playing with a camera strap!

—————————————-

Thank you to everyone who played the macro quiz yesterday. It's a while since we've had one and I think perhaps this one was a little too tough. Here's the answers anyway.

1. I can't believe that no-one got this; call yourselves photographers? It's the side view of a lens!

2. It's the stopper from a swing top beer bottle.

3. Like a lot of you said, its part of a pen.

4. It's actually a Brussels Sprout, but I let anyone have a point who said cabbage, lettuce or some such greenery.

5. Well done Stéfan, at least I'm not the only boozer here!

6. I call this a bulldog clip; most people seemed to know it even if you did use other names. As to the shot, I don't believe my picture is entirely original. I'm sure I've seen something similar on here before (maybe on Helen's blog), so if you're feeling miffed that your composition has been nicked ?? sorry.

7. Again well done Stéfan, it is the end of a Swiss Army Knife, and a particularly dusty one at that.

8. Yep, it's a pine cone.

9. No-one got this and I can't say I'm surprised why; It's a frozen banana that's gone black. The white bits are ice crystals that started forming almost immediately once I'd taken it from the freezer. If you're wondering why I have such an object, I'll be using it to follow Matt Preston's fabulously quick banana ice cream recipe [masterchef.com.au]. It's delicious.

10. It's a berry-light from our Christmas tree. Though I do like the idea of it being a red giant.

AWW, she is looking so annoyed about you disturbing her on her cosy presents bed. My cat is just like that. :D

Your cat has a slightly manic look in his eye, could it be that his present is a catnip toy... I enjoyed the Macro challenge, you need to do one more often!

So cute! Incidentally, I did spot the side view of the lens correctly yesterday but didn't have time to post m answers! You're correct in thinking I'd photographed a bulldog clip - at least twice.
