Spruce Cone – Macro Scales

Do you need a clue or two to help you identify this photo? Okay, the mystery object is scaly and it grows on trees. No, don’t beg or plead. That is the only hint I am going to give you.


Normally I would insert a quotation about scales here, but it appears that no one has found a way to say something profound about (close your eyes if you don’t want to know what the object is) conifer cones.

However, while I was researching on the internet I found a small series of quotations that illustrate a different kind of scale. I thought they were immensely funny, but maybe it is because I found them on a Sunday morning, not a Monday morning. Sunday is a much happier day than Monday, don’t you think?

Here are two of the best. If you know of, or can think of any others, be sure to add them to the comments.

On a scale of Voldemort to Pinocchio, how Nosy are you?

On a scale of One to Osama Bin Laden how good was my hiding spot?

  1. DAMN!!! I’m with Brown Road Chronicles.. I thought it was marshmallows toasted to a perfect crunchy caramel color and sitting on a slab of chocolate and graham cracker!! I think I’m going to make a s’more!!!


  2. You had me going, I would’ve never guessed this one. Before I got to where you told it was a conifer cone, I was thinking it may be some sort of lizard that lives in the trees. lol Wouldn’t I of looked silly with that guess. 😆 Great macro and fun quotes. 🙂


    1. Conifer cones litter my yard, so it was very easy to find a photogenic one. You might be more familiar with lizards than pine cones, so a lizard guess wouldn’t be silly at all!


  3. Very cool shot, Margie! Looked like some delicious fresh-outta-the-oven rolls to me. I think I need a snack…

    Loved the nosy scale quote. Took a minute for it to kick in: old Voldemort doesn’t have much of a beezer, so of course he’s low man… ha! : )


    1. I didn’t see oven fresh rolls in that photo! I think most of my readers must have been hungry when they visited my blog.
      I loved the wordplay and double meaning of that quote.


There, I'm finished. Now it is your turn:
