Congrats, @minnbuckeye! This was certainly a "battle of the bugs," but the tank-like asaphid wins out of sheer force, beauty, and rarity! :yay-smiley-1:

Thank you  to all! It seems my fossil finds always seem to end up in second place!!!! Finally broke that string. @Ludwigia's stunning Trigonia and @Kane's wonderfully prepped Eldredgeops led me to think maybe third place would be proper positioning for my trilobite this month. I was very glad to see so many participants too. It is not about winning, but about displaying one's favorite finds for all of us to enjoy. Anyways, I should quit typing and go look for a fossil for this month's contest. I need to give some competion to @GeschWhat.

 

Thanks again,

Mike

Congrats!

 

That's a sweet bug for sure. You are right about the FOTM contest being more about members having a place to post finds that they consider special than about winning a particular month (but it IS always nice to have your special find confirmed by the other members).

 

 

Cheers.

Many of you mention "nice prep". The reality is " nice sledge hammer". I was splitting large pieces of matrix that only rarely produce whole bugs. They look nice with multiple trilo-bits on them. This slab split off of a larger piece. NO prep. Zero! You see it as I did when finding it, other than I found and re-attached eyes 2 weeks later. Sorry to disappoint those into prepping.
