Looking down a vase.

I'd guess either blown glass or an eyeball ;)

Janeywan & Rain -- Good guesses, all, and the photo was shot looking downward; but, neither glass nor animal part is shown in the photo.

a toilet!

Kay--It had occurred to me that someone might think the photo to be of water going down a drain; but, it didn't occur to me that it would be a toilet drain! Thanks for the laugh. I'll give the answer in the morning.

I've looked and looked at this photo.....I'm getting a little crazy now. Yeah, it looks like some kind of eye, but I know it's not. A toilet...that's a good one Kay. Nope....I'm officially stuck. Love the colors though... ~Joy

Ok here is another guess. A dab of blue shampoo on cream rinse with a quick swirl. None of you ladies use blue shampoo I'm guessing, so only I would know this. lrl

Joy--Until Rain mentioned it, I had not thought of an eyeball; but, it really does look like one, doesn't it?

Janeywan--I don't know anyone who uses blue shampoo (well...not since I used Selsun Blue on poison ivy rash a year or two ago), but good thought.

Ta dum !!!!!
I was making up some hummingbird nectar. What you see is 6 cups of water and 1.5 cups of sugar, in a Revere Ware stainless steel sauce pan, heated to nearly the boiling point and stirred -- with a drop of blue food coloring added.
Ta dum !!!!!

I add a dab of food coloring so that I can tell the level of nectar in each feeder without having to go outside. Have a great Thursday, friends.

Ohhhh of course...now why didn't we get that? ~Joy

Ha ha. I could never have guessed that!

Blue hummingbird nectar? I thought they were attracted to red? Isn't sugar water unhealthy for them?

I thought the pic looked like an eye ball at first, too. Then, when I saw the circular diminishing size of circular lines I decided this was a potter's wheel with clay, spinning with blue dye somehow.

Hattie--That's why I thought the game would be fun!

Joared--Hummingbirds are attracted to red; but, they don't really care what color something is once they figure out it's food (the metal flower petals on the feeder are reddish - rather faded by now). Sugar water is what people feed hummingbirds. As long as it isn't allowed to ferment, it is good for hummers - 4 parts water to 1 part granulated sugar, heated/boiled to completely dissolve the suger. What should not be used in making necter for them is honey or fruit juice because it ferments quicker and tends to grow molds that aren't good for the hummers.

I hadn't considered the wheel. I'll have to wait until everyone has forgotten your clue before I do something with the wheel. Thanks for the idea!

Well.. you can now state you know someone that uses blue shampoo, but it's my secret. hehe

Janeywan--And it's still secret, what with my blog being closed to search engines. Obviously (and that's the whole point, isn't it?) it doesn't "show" in your photos. You are not anyone's idea of a blue-haired lady!

I'm with Joared - I thought it had something to do with the wheel. Cool photo shoot!
