  7. Chad Haney says:

    I saw this before so I’ll be quiet.

  8. Rajini Rao says:

    Go ahead and stake your claim then, Chad Haney 🙂 Did  you see all six of them?

  9. Ooh, thanks for posting this, Rajini Rao – it came up somewhere in the stream a few days ago, and was instantly buried before I could really look at it.

  10. Rajini Rao says:

    The first image is really special, David Archer . It won a prize in this year’s Nikon Small World Photo contest, which is always a great place for me to seek inspiration on posts 🙂

  11. Rajini Rao says:

    Good looking and brainy, sigh… Gnotic Pasta 😀

  12. Rajini Rao says:

    Very nice cover, thanks Feisal Kamil !

  13. Chad Haney says:

    Oops I was walking the dog and didn’t notice the rest.

  14. Rajini Rao says:

    I’ll pretend I didn’t see one of your Halloween posts, Feisal Kamil . Enjoy the family!

  15. I was going to say something along the lines of Kim Cockrill’s answer but nothing quite so … poetic.  Will I stake a claim??? Don’t think so…  (…red blood corpuscle cupcake???  Are you kidding me?  OK that’s a rhetorical…)

  16. Rajini Rao says:

    For you, a Salmonella plush toy with its own petri dish to snuggle in John Christopher 🙂


  17. Unless it contains  a high concentration of Theobromine it won’t do the trick  Rajini Rao 🙂  [[Btw I must say that giant molecule is really cute]]

  18. Rajini Rao says:

    Death by Chocolate can be arranged, John Christopher 🙂

  19. OK, the one on the left has got to be a Rhesus Monkey and the one on the right some kind of amphibian… no idea on the middle..  Final answer Rajini Rao 🙂

  20. Rajini Rao If I didn’t have a serious personal grudge against salmonella, I’d find that adorable. Ooh, flagella!

  21. Rajini Rao says:

    Messaging you the answer, Gnotic Pasta . Anyone else had it with guessing?

  22. Given the multi-image stitch, whatever it is, it’s big. I guess. If I don’t cheat, I give up.

  23. Rajini Rao says:

    The first bat baby with its folded hands must be Do No Evil, which is fitting since bats don’t hear Evil anyway..with their sonar sense.

  24. Oh wow – I cheated anyway, and that stellar object is very cool!

  25. They’re all from the depths of my insanity.

    Although I have seen the bats before. ;D

  26. Trade you, Feisal Kamil – I’m driving to the airport, through cold pounding rain, to pick up my wife. It’s nasty out – wettest Halloween in 20 years, they say.

  27. Rajini Rao says:

    Ooh, I have cupcakes for you, Kimberly Chapman . Just be cause you are the cake goddess. Hang on.

  28. Rajini Rao says:

    Drive safely, David Archer . I tagged you on the answer post (for later).

  29. Will do, Rajini Rao – thanks!
