Guessing Game

What is this?

I’m so confident you’ll be utterly stumped, and ultimately surprised, by this object, we’ve* thrown $1,000 into the kitty for the person who correctly identifies it.

Good luck, guys ‘n’ gals!

    OK ok ok, just soz you stop crying!
    I wish I COULD guess this one… but it’s wayyy too hard.

    I think it’s made of plant fiber of some kind. Something softish.. like sea grass but the fibers here look thinner and more woolly than that.
    I think man made.. it looks to be tied together in the middle on the top photo.
    Now I’m wondering whether it’s a solid ball tied in at the middle or two parts that come apart – possibly with a hollow inside…
    It would be a good pet-toy but I haz no idea what it is.
    I suspect it’s from another country.

    The Hare says, I dunno, then said, shush, because I wrote exactly what he said.
    I think it’s some kind of yarn or seed. Was off organising birthday parties…emotional blackmail – sheesh.

      @klopp – “I think it’s some kind of yarn or seed. Was off organising birthday parties…emotional blackmail – sheesh.” No; and no (and on the latter so far from the truth, I’m truly saddened you heard it as such).

        …the effect of not speaking face to face and in snippets…mis-interpretations.

          @klopp – Not to play devil’s advocate – well, OK, just a little 😉 – it’s very possible to get to know someone through blogs (and other techie as well as non-techie media), potentially rendering geographical distance a lesser obstacle than perceived.

            …and easier to mis-interpret the intent of the words because there is no body-language or tone of voice involved…

              @Klopp – Again playing devil’s advocate, the absence of body language or tone of voice do not necessarily impede. Let me present a simplistic example. Pick an author you like. From his or her writing, you learn volumes about him/her. Have you met the author? Probably not. Especially if s/he’s dead! The written word is just as powerful, indeed even moreso, as the spoken, in revelation of self as well as the learning of another.

    The top picture makes the outer layer look like feathers, but the bottom pic makes it look more like fibers. The first thing I thought of was actually an owl pellet, followed quickly by what I thought a newly hatched but unfurled baby bird might like look sans gooey eggness, but overall, I’m at a loss. I’ll be interested to find out what it is.

    On a different note, where are you going to go once you’ve achieved escape velocity from Tacoma?

      @B – Good guesses. But no. And sometime down the road pics will reveal. With room for a wild card (and so’s not to jinx it in the meantime), the probable destination state’s just east of where pop & L. live.

    Finally have time to comment on my blogging friend’s posts.

    I am not really sure what this is. I have 2 different guesses. 1) it is some kind of man made decorative treasure holder and 2) it is some kind of bird nest.
