eons_ago Koneprusia dahmani is a punch to the stomach when it comes to preparation works, as it is possibly one of the spiniest trilobite species. But if all goes well, it could very well be one of the most fantastic and jaw dropping trilobites of the Devonian Moroccan group. Props to Horst Burkard for the amazing prep work! 👏🏼
Someone had to manually drill around all those spines to extract this critter from the surrounding rock.
Seeing a grizzly in the north range of Denali National Park is always a fun sight. It is a rare occurrence to see one of these guys, but fortunately I was bale to capture him looking back at us as we slowly drove by.
Fall colors in Lauterbrunnen, a Swiss valley that is barely wider than a kilometer in some places. Several waterfalls cascade down the cliffs, almost being lost in spray before the water can reach the bottom. The river that runs through the valley is fed by snowmelt in the higher peaks and is therefore very cold and pure. I could sit here and watch the clouds move and light change for hours.
