Glad to see you took advantage of some decent December weather. That site looks gorgeous and that chunk of Devonian tree bark is definitely a keeper. Congratulations Dom on finding it and successfully removing it from the matrix. Love to see a better picture of it. Thanks for sharing.

Interesting fossil.

Your 1st and 3rd pics look like oil paintings...

Yes, those were taken on my crappy phone. I am not sure why they look that way

I don't use phone cameras but my guess is there is a setting, or it is permanently set, to compress the file so it takes up less space.

Nice find! That looks like Stigmaria, which is a root structure, more so than a branch or bark. But then again, there are no lateral root structures coming off it either so I could be wrong. Interesting fossil for sure.

Here are a couple sightly better pictures. I need to go over my Gilboa articles again as they combined a couple species after new finds in 2010 or 12 and Id'd a new one

That's definitely a great find, and that site looks like one could spend some good time there. :dinothumb:
