Any chance of a straight down shot from above the trilobite?

Thanks Tim! When I heard he wasnt able to enter it into the FOTM contest because of a late picture I was quite disappointed as this specimen is just superb and amazing. Its definitely worthy of the coveted GDB award!

I concur. :) 

And a GDB is rarer than a FotM.  ;)

Do you mind telling us what it cost to get something like that prepped?  Just a ballpark number is fine.  That looks amazing.

@Ramo, I am not sure it is wise to put the price out there. A big discount was likely given to me and I do not want to create the image that this facility does great work cheaply. They could have charged me 5x what they did and I would have been happy!

Giving a ball park estimate via PM is probably OK. :)

Man, just now seeing this guy. What a killer piece. I could only dream of finding something like this, and Ben did a crazy good job of prepping it. I would not have dared to take that task on myself. That clan sure know their way around bugs! Kudos to everyone involved in this beauty!
