Picture Wednesday: Mystery Macro | Day 270

I could tell you what it is. But I’m not going to – instead, you will try to figure it out!

So, here is the image.

Give me your best guess in the comments. (If you cheated and did a reverse image search, then please don’t publicise your answer.) The first person to get it right can then be really proud of themselves.

You have until Sunday, when I’ll post the answer and some background on it as well.

Happy guessing!

  1. My first instinct was a preserved deep sea angler type fish. The texture reminds me of the ones I saw at the museum last year.

    But the hair like follicles I think militate against that as fish don’t have hair do they?

  2. It does look like something very small magnified. What looked like hairs at first seem more liquidlike upon further inspection. I’d wager for something smaller even than drosophila.
