[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Good apinion of masters of photography from TN stimulate me to publish another fossil from Ljubljanas exibition.

Trilobites look like enlongated crabs wearing motocycle helmets,
or, sort of like horseshoe crabs. There are big ones and little
ones in the fossil record spread out through a large number of
strata. From their appearance (counting legs, noting if the legs
are used for breathing or walking[1], and other details) we deduce
the trilobies are arthrapods but in a different group from the
crustaceans or insects.

They died out a very long time ago but used to be real major players.
Thier fossils appear all over the place and can often be purchaced in
meusem gift shops. There are scads of clearly different types of
trilobites and the types change with time.

I like this "flash backs" to remote times.
Nice image captured, although I think is just a little bit blured due to slow speed. I liked your description of Trilobites :)
I added the image to Paleontology theme.
Regards, Felipe.

YES! Trylobites rule!!! :-)
I never understood why the hell they died out!!?? Does anybody know the answer!? There were so variable and there were so many other animals that survived.
One of the mysteries of nature!
Best greetings,

Great post. Note very wellcome.
I have myself one of this trilobits at home, in my collection. I'll try to photograph it and post it here. Looks kinda like this, but has some differences. You,ll see soon...

Regards, Petru

Original fotografia, muy bien realizada, gran nitidez y detalle.

Hi Marjan,
Very illustrative picture and useful note.
Good macro and details. I´m glad you posted paleontology images, I´m amateur in these themes.

Hello Marjan,
It's amazing to me. I'm pretty new to fossils.
How did you get it? What a thesaurus of nature!!
Have you seen a dragonfly fossil?
Very nice shot!
Thanks for sharing this photo and note.
