I started fossil hunting again (devonian fossils in western NY)

I took a very, very extended break from fossil/rock hunting (2-3 years) because I became quite enamored with bottle digging/antiquing. I found many an antique bottle and awesome antique piece for super cheap, but eventually I heard the rocks calling my name and so I'm back at it again. Here's the best stuff from this year so far.

A silicified favosites fossil...

A big chunky limestone piece with fragments of horn corals, brachiopoids and some syringoporas...

A rock someone on that "what's this rock?" Reddit told me was an Encrinite (I don't know, I don't think it's made of crinoid fossils...)

My girlfriend found this rock full of syringoporas (and the above chain coral on the left)

My spot is kind of depleted after my taking a half dozen trips down there so far. This might be the entirety of my finds this year haha. I could always go down there and grab more

palm-sized favosites. There's so many of those down there I stopped picking them up. Thanks for clicking :)
