I could be a Chess piece, a drawer knob, a religious icon of some type, an incense burner...I don't have a clue but it is a nice shot.

That reminds me of a story about a large company in which there was one employee that nobody knew very well. Nobody had any idea what this person did for the company but they knew he did it very well!

Sorry, Cal, none of your guesses were correct.

Anyone?

Could it be the 'thingy' that fits into the end of the leg of a chair or table that allows for easy gliding?

It's one of those things that looks so familiar, but I just can't place it!! Good one.
You've probably said before, but do tell what camera set up you use. My camera doesn't come near to your clear focused macros!

A knob that fits on the end of a screw to retain something,(i.e.such as a light fixtureglobe.)

The backside of a microfilm reader light bulb?



A few minutes later...... I take that back. I don't see the electrical connections for it. But, it is shaped correctly.

You have me stumped.

No correct guesses yet. A hint: it attaches to something else. Diesel1 is getting somewhat warm.

Tigerwings, I use my 20D and EF 100 2.8 Macro lens with Canon's MR-14EX ring light.
