Hi From Michigan! I had a great time finding fossils along the Northeast shoreline of Lake Michigan (in the Leelanau Bay, just outside of Charlevoix) this summer. Along with my usual haul of horn corals and crinoids (and two intact bivalves!!), I found these two pieces interesting. Fossil A is a real soup, and I'd like help identifying pretty much anything you see in the picture, especially the thing that looks like an insect. I'm not sure if Fossil B is actually a fossil or a geological formation; otherwise, my best guess is a type of coral? Thanks in advance!

Greetings! Each summer I visit a small, secluded town in the Northern lower peninsula of Michigan. This beach in particular is just loaded with fossilized corals and shells, and I always come home with some beautiful finds. The area is known for horn corals, petoskey stones, and a related coral fossil known as the Charlevoix stone. Take a look! *Note: the last jpeg is two pictures of the same stone.*
