Any chance of a 'What is it?' that's in focus?
What do you mean LeeE?

That Karen's good at this game, ain't she!
Hmmm.... almost too good if you ask me!
But it's seems that everyone is good at it except for me. :)

I just finaly saw the outline of the bottle on the left and that stem through the middle had to be something like a straw or pump or hose..etc... LOL.. I do like this game though and it keeps me busy guessing when no one else is guessing... I like when we all play more clues eliminated that way.

It seems to me that the last few seem to have been so blurred and out of focus that they could be nearly anything and it was only once a few clues had been given that people could narrow things down until finally someone hit it.

You could try reading your camera manual to learn how to focus it properly  :P

Wow...I thought they were purposely taken that way. and the one looking through the water glass or bottle was great.. I thought they were good without the clues and the last one I had before he posted the other comment.. we had just posted at the same time and I had to resend my comment about handsoap.
I say good job.. I think there are mowe ways to post a clue then just a blown up picture..Takes more thought to guess by distorted images.. it was cool....

  Many little brussel spouts...lol?

Actually I was thinking it reminds me of this annual grassy bud that grows here in the meadows in this whispy wheaty grass. It has this bud like head on it... we used to wrap the stems around the head and shoot them at each other...but I don't recall what it was called. Is it some sort of bud....or a green pinecone or tree cone of sorts?

Sort of, yes. I think that you're pretty close, so I'll post it.
