You know the nursery rhyme –
Little Miss Muffet
Sat on a tuffet,
Eating her curds and whey;
Along came a spider
Who sat down beside her
And frightened Miss Muffet away.
Wikipedia.org has the following –
A tuffet, pouffe, or hassock is a piece of furniture used as a footstool or low seat. It is distinguished from a stool in that it is completely covered in cloth so that no legs are visible, and is essentially a large hard cushion that may have an internal wooden frame to give it more rigidity.
Do you remember this picture?
It is displayed in my post ‘mushrooms‘. All the pictures I take are with my smartphone; with some pictures turning out better than I expect compared to others. I never change the settings on my camera, and depending the time of the day and lights and other conditions out of my control; I just hope for a good picture. I always take at least 2 pictures of the same subject and sometimes more; my thinking one might turn out better than the other(s). For a while I was in search of the perfect mushroom or in this case mushrooms for my previously mentioned post. The great photo almighty knew this and these mushrooms popped up one day right outside of our RV. Lucky me!
So my usual 2 pictures were taken of the mushrooms. And when deciding which to use for my mushrooms post, upon further inspection of the 2 pictures, I decided to use the above picture – picture #2. I had a very good reason, because upon further inspection, picture #1 provided me another post for another day – that would be this post.
I never saw little Miss Muffet sitting on the tuffet eating her curds and whey. I was going to actually write here ‘Who actually eats curds and whey?’, but I goggled it and come to find out, I do. Google has the following –
Actually, you’ve probably eaten curds and whey without knowing it. Curds and whey are actually the lumps and liquid found in cottage cheese. If you didn’t know, cottage cheese is made from skim milk.
Back to my story –
Along came a spider and sat down beside her and frightened Miss Muffet away. This is most likely the reason for me not seeing little Miss Muffet, because I did see the spider.
That spider decided to photobomb my picture!
Google has the following –
a photograph that has been spoiled by the unexpected appearance of an unintended subject in the camera’s field of view as the picture was taken.
It is okay little spider; you did not spoil my photo; after all you gave me another idea for a post.
Here is my picture #1. Do you see the spider that frightened Miss Muffet away?
I zoomed in, do you see it now?
There he or she is – I was photobombed!
