What is that?
I'm at a complete loss.
A small, dry bump on the surface of a squash?
A dumpling swimming in...something.
Is it some sort of cactus node?
You got it, Rachel!
How did she know that? My comment disappeared, but it was wrong anyway.
Gak! What kind of Squash has a 'bump' like that???
Buttercup, kabocha, what have you, almost all winter squash have them. This one's not freakishly huge or gross, just really, really magnified. Who knew?
Wow, got it again!What kind of camera are you using to capture these wonderful close-ups?
Time to go inspect my squash.
Rachel, I use a Canon PowerShot SX10IS, which is not a point-and-click, and not a digital SLR, but something in between. For the supermacro photos, in addition I use a Raynox Macroscopic Lens attachment that I bought over the Internet. If you like supermacro photos (and bugs and flowers), click on my Flickr link on the sidebar, where there are lots more.
Brr. This is making rethink squash.
The more I look at this picture, the more freaked out I am. Macro pictures are not good on my nerves sometimes.
