    @jbauer Cool! I’ll have to give it a try. Thanks!

    @jbauer Thanks! So with your underwater photography, do you put the camera in the water too? This sounds like something I might try. 😁

    I don’t like to Photoshop my fossil pics (beyond maybe adjusting the exposure) because I don’t want to unrealistically distort the images; I want the fossils to speak for themselves. But I thought the pinhole filter in Photoshop Express did some really interesting things with the textures in this photo, so I guess there are exceptions to the rule. 😁 #fossil

    • Definitely! Looks awesome! Sometimes playing around with exposure, brightness, and a few other misc. tools really make specific features pop that you didn’t see before. I’ve also dabbled with under water photography- super helpful for seeing plate boundaries in echinoderms but bubbles are your enemy!!!

    • Haha! No, just the specimen is submerged. Usually just in a small tin or Tupperware.

    A split open rock revealed this interesting fossil bed of brachiopods. See the Images tab for more photos. The larger side of the rock shows the positive cast, while the smaller rock shows the negative mold. Measurements refer to the entire rock face of the larger chunk.

    I picked up this fossil for the two prominent Mucrospirifer(?) shells, but if you look closer, you’ll see all sorts of little shelled critters. Shown is about 4-5cm, top to bottom. #fossil

    Cool collection! I’m jealous of the Dunkleosteus. 😄

    @mackenzie-smith It’s from a site right near Hayfield, Virginia. Fossil 043228
    is from the same location if you’d like a more precise location.

    I like the detail of this Mucrospirifer fossil. The growth lines are especially prominent . #fossil

    Two brachiopods, one on each side of the rock. Measurements refer to the more complete brachiopod on the “front” of the rock. This brachiopod has two halves, one positive impression, one negative.

    I looked it up in Fossil Shark Teeth of the World, and i think it’s from a tiger shark. 🐯🦈

    A nice, if tiny, brachiopod with what may be growth ridges.

    A collection of broken Mucrospirifer fossils. The dimensions refer to the entire face of the fossil rather than a specific individual brachiopod.

    Almost all my fossils are in pretty rough shape, like this ammonite. But I still love the aesthetic of a worn fossil. You can barely tell the ammonite’s shape and there are scant few details of the shell, but I feel like it still has an interesting story to tell. #fossil

    On this fossil are an ammonite (Agoniatities vanumemi), a trilobite cephalon (with one eye prominent), and a trilobite pygidium. See Images tab for more pictures.
