Looks like your off to a good start with these very small ammonites. The lighting is really working out for you.

I see these almost as portraits.... Exceptional!

So sorry to hear about the job loss. I hope you’re able to find one soon.

I really like the photos. The detail and sharpness are amazing for such tiny specimens!

What kind of camera and lense are you using?

I'm using my trusty old Nikon D800, mostly with the Nikon 85mm f/1.8 and extension tubes, although for the super-macro shots I use a home-made rig with a telephoto lens and microscope objective. All of the photos are focus stacked to get better depth of field.

Thank you! No idea on the ants I'm afraid. They're both in Baltic amber, so they're approximately the same age, but that sort of identification is way beyond me. I see so many things in this amber that I can't identify. For example, anyone know what this disc-shaped thing is, in front of the earthy lump? It looks almost like a mushroom or something.
