L ….any clue what this is??? 😀 Ofcourse I know, what this is! But let me see….

Who is gonna be the first one to crack this up! 😉


  1. colleen

    Some kind of fruit/vegetable? I know it’s a great photo! Does that count?

  2. chloe

    greeeeen machine 🙂 i love green
    i don’t know what it is though..(?)

  3. Lisa

    Is this a trick question? Great picture, even though I don’t know what it is!

  4. Beyond Bluestockings

    Could it be an unripened rambutan? Or a sea monster? Maybe something you left growing in the bottom of your fridge? 😛

      Thanks Colleen, It is definitely a fruit 🙂

      Thanks Chloe, Green are cool!

      Thanks Lisa, but not exactly!

      Thanks Jo ~Beyond Bluestockings
      Hahaha! You have really wild imaginations! lol! Sea monster was ok! but something that grows in the bottom of my fridge… That was.. OH NO! 😛
      You got it right Jo 🙂 Its is an unripened rambutan!

    I was close at least. I have never heard of a rambutan. Must not have those in these here country mountains….

  6. colleen

    Thanks for liking my shrooms. I would have to say the biggest ones were about the size of a softball. They were growing at the base of a huge oak tree.

  7. dibear

    I’m with Colleen, never heard of it. Something not available in the U.S. I bet. 🙂 Super great macro Nivin.

      ‘Rambutan’ is a fruit. This is a micro shot of an unripened rambutan! It is believed to be native to, Malay Archipelago ~~ the cluster of islands that are formed tectonically, located between mainland Southeastern Asia and Australia.

    Looks like the seed head to our native leatherflowers. Well, I’ve never even heard of a rambutan, so I’ll have to look it up. Fabulous shot and subject! Just proves you can teach an old botanist a new plant!
