announcing the 12th guess the shadow contest

50% of the beneficiary rewards to this post go in support of #hive-179017

i would like to express my sincere appreciation to all our generous sponsors @hive-179017 @ecency @taskmanager @pixresteemer and @galenkp and a special thanks to OCD for the support they provide.

first a little info about this contest:
each week i post a new image of a shadow and the contestants try to guess what is making it. the first to surmise what it is gets a prize but there are also prizes for other guesses- mostly based on their entertainment value. there's not much fun in everybody guessing what somebody else already has guessed so the more creative the reply, the more the prize. the idea is to have fun. if you are contributing to the fun somehow, you'll likely qualify for something.

our ehived leader @melinda010100 provides 3 HIVE and 300 POINTS in prizes and our charitable judges may also recommend nominations to pixresteemer.

we also have a special prize- the venwood prize awarded to the venwoodest reply. that is HIVE-speak for an extraordinary reply which stretches the limit of what is conceivable to the point where it bursts. bursts out in laughter, that is. the venwood prize shall only be awarded for advanced effort abounding with fantastical elucidation. a one-liner just won't do,

a venwood approach to a mystery is not to attempt to reveal some profound hidden truth, but rather to remove the weight of darkness from the unknown thereby lightening the load for all those fortunate enough to happen upon such a response. by extension it is an approach to life itself.
any and all contributions to this "venwood prize fund" are most welcome. 100%.of all contributions shall be awarded to the contestants.

monday night at midnight UTC the 11th guess the shadow contest closes
so there is still a little time to "solve" that stumper . here's the link:

once you've cracked that nut, or even if the nut has you cracked, here's your chance to solve yet another of the great mysteries of our time.
what on earth is making this shadow??? hmmmmmmm

if you think some ________ (-body else) has beaten you to your guess, there's no need to throw in the sponge, Bob, the point is we're here to have some fun, so do join in.

this contest still has just one basic rule:
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
please live by it at least until midnight May 10th.
