From our earlier What & Where quiz, this is what we encountered in Yellowstone National Park — just a couple of days before the South Entrance was plowed open. I believe this would make hash out of an ATV.
Remember Tillerman — you asked for it! Heh, heh — now here are your clues:
- Ummm. Hmmm. What was this again?
- Oh yeah! It’s some sort of… whatsis… thing… blob…
- It almost looks like an out-of-focus spinning top… or a Christmas tree ornament… or a snail shell…
- Boy, I’m having trouble remembering whether I fooled with the color or not, but I clearly remember this being a much larger image when I started — so yes, this is a tight crop of an area that’s out of focus within the frame.
That’s it — that’s all you get. Go ahead and do a reverse Google image look-up… you won’t find a thing. Exif data? Hah! I’ve stripped it clean. Heck, you’re lucky that I even gave you the image right-side up and in color. So have at it!
UPDATE: I’m declaring this a virtual tie between Tillerman, Elisa, and the newcomer, SilverFox! It is the rotary plow used to clear the huge drifts from within Yellowstone National Park! Check out the one at the 00:35 second mark in the video below; I believe that is the one that I took a photo of a few years ago.
Happy birthday, Dad!
