Bejeweled Mystery

Here's a picture I snapped last night. Not Photoshopped (other than crop and resize). Any guesses as to its identification?

A shed snake skin? LOL! Sorry, but as soon as I saw it visions of snakes and leaves and tree limbs started going through my aging brain.

Does the title mean it really is a jewel, with an extreme close-up? Nah, that would be too easy. Whatever it is, it would make a great modern painting!

Lady K... You're on the right track. As Willy Wonka said in 1971, "Wait a minute! Strike that. Reverse it. Thank you."

I think she's got it! It's that Hawk, either through water, perhaps on your lens?

Gotta be, or I'll go nuttier than usual pondering it!

Ink on a drop of water?

...and AD(S) wins the coveted "close enough" award!

In reality, this is a faceted crystal drinking glass filled with water, into which black ink has been dropped and swirled a bit.

Oh, of course it is! Which explains the "bejeweled" part. Good one - thanks for the mental exercise. Is there a trophy? :)
