OPERATION TRILOBITES: UNVEILED!
The trilobites at this quarry are incredibly special and highly sought after. You see, they were preserved in glistening pyrite! Under the very special quarry conditions, these incredible trilobites allowed for their soft tissues to be preserved, like legs, antennae and even eggs! This preservation only occurs at a few sites on the planet. The glorious species shown is Triarthrus eatoni. What a beautiful little guy, wouldn’t you say?! .
After a hard day spent digging up the past, it’s nice to know all of the hard work had paid off. Excited to see what else comes from this entrancing place! Stay tuned for more :). Time for a little whiskey to celebrate! Cheers everyone and thanks for following my adventures! Get up and get out... the world is yours to discover!
Next up: HERKIMER DIAMOND DIG!

Nie jestem religijna, ale bardzi lubię kościoły. Ten przy Jackson Square jest pięknym połączeniem hiszpańskiego renesansu i stylu neogotyckiego 😊
I'm not a religious person but I really like old churches. This one on Jackson Square is a beautiful mix of the colonial and neo gothic style 😊
Sun Beam. I forgot how beautifully HDR captures late fall/ early winter light. I’ve stopped using HDR ever since I started shooting with my Nikons because the colors just didn’t do it for me, but that was in late winter through early fall. This light right now is perfect for it. #hdrphoto
