Taking a big risk here, submitting a shot taken with my Droid. I think it has enough exif data to pass validation. Not that I'll every need it...

The guessing has me in stitches, especially 21.gif herfotoman. Most guesses were on the right track, but 21.gif daisydavid got the closest so far.

Thanks everyone for playing along, and for all the wonderful comments. Yeah, a 'droid...

Very abstract. I like it. And I don't have a clue as to what it is.

Jeez! I'm not sure I want to know what this is. It looks like a Frankenstein creation, all sewn together!

You’ve got me! It looks organic. Perhaps a dried leaf of some sort?

That almost looks like the bark of a cork oak tree . . . if not, I'm out. I have no idea. Great image, though - 8

Wood.

i've looked at this shot 4 times now and it looks different each time. looks like some kind of seed/pod but i think that's wrong...ok three footballs under some canvas?

This one is very disturbing....almost looks like someone has had their eyes stitched shut. Very off-kilter -- but good!

Now in their 146'th year of the 150 years incubating period, the monstrosa pods were close to being weathered through, making it easy for the imminent breakout by the creatures.

I have no idea. Looks like something from the plant category. I like the tones in this image.
