Friday Photo Fun - Something Special

Something Special
by Rachel Hoyt



Recently discovered to be more closely related
to birds than previously shown through fossils we've dated.
Once used to make guitar picks,
Now, for other reasons, is hunted by hicks.

Friday Photo Fun is when I share a randomly captured moment,
or perhaps a photo experiment with more purposeful intent,
then pair it with a rhyming riddle to exercise your mind
and teach you more weird facts to which you once were blind.

After the answer is guessed, I will post a second, non-abstract photo,
and just in case you wanted to know,
the first is not a photoshopped version of the second -
they're shot using different techniques that to me beckon.


Wanda should not be sorry for knowing me well
and getting here early to guess correctly: turtle shell.

  1. Well, I know guitar picks can be made from tortoise shells and hicks hunt and probably eat tortoise so.... is it a tortoise shell??

  3. Even though I am late I am so elated that I know this one. I had guitar picks while playing guitar that looked like tortoise shell but, weren't. And I grew up with hicks, thanks God we never ate turtles though. That's just sickening... Have a great weekend Rachel.

  5. I always get here a little too late to make a guess lately, but I love to see what people come up with and what it is! I don't think I could have guessed it...kudos to those who did!

  6. Hello Rachel.
    Sorry I'm late. I see that Wanda has gone and solved the riddle AGAIN!
    I saw the feet, but I never would have guessed turtle shell. I learned something new today. Thanks for sharing.
    BTW, I like the blue...it's kind of soothing.

    If you have time, come join the party at Blog Hop Saturday! Linky will stay open until 11:59pm Sat June 2nd. Hope you can make it!
