Thanks Adam . I was quite astonished by them I did not realise or this colour was fossilised with in the petrified wood. They remind me of arial landscape photos too.

Very cool Bobby! A really nice crab too!

I've been wanting to get a pea crab or two for a while but I can never find any that crisp and defined. Really a beautiful little crustacean

:envy:

Not all macro shots, but I thought you might all appreciate these low-light, relatively long exposure photos of some nacreous ammonites. These are sort of cheating - they don't look quite like this all the time, but I think that low light shots are the best way to capture the play of colour that can't normally be captured in ordinary photographs. All examples are placenticeras meeki, Bearpaw formation, SK, Canada. Same genus/formation that most ammolite comes from.

 

Beautiful. :wub:

Not at all in fact you’re  most welcome. I want to quote Ken @digit “Wonderful new worlds can open up when you change the scale of observation” that is exactly what have done but with light.  Beautiful fossil and images . Cheers Bobby

Today I got some pictures of a meg through my microscope. Not the best but not too bad.

Some serrations:

This wonderful coral plate was a gift. It is beautiful and somewhat otherworldly. Including 

Aulopora,  Dibunophyllum,  KoninckophyllumDiphyphyllumis Diphyphyllum in top, one single corallite of Actinocyathus,  That makes 6 species. Words of advice for dyslexia's don’t study corals it is a slippery slope. I polished this slice and it was worth the hard work indeed. 

 

Thank you Tarquin a wonderful piece added to my collection. @TqB

Wow! I never knew Lycoptera had teeth! I'll have to check my specimens when I get home!

This goniatite fell off a hash plate from Jacksboro Texas, Graham Formation, Pennsylvanian Subperiod. Those are mm marks on the scale. Taken with a cheap plugable scope so I had to chose which part of the goniatite to focus on.

Good job it did not fall on the carpet, you would have definitely lost it. Very tiny and nice specimen.

Found a split shale pair of a lower Pennsylvanian plant root system. Possibly Pinnularia?
