It’s
FOSSIL Week!


  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fossil


So many choices, 140 pictures in 8 folders.  Which 10 do I choose?

“Fossils are the preserved remains or traces of animals, plants, and other organisms from the remote past.”

“Fossils vary in size from microscopic, even single bacterial cells[6] one micrometer in diameter, to gigantic, such as dinosaurs and trees many meters long and weighing many tons.”

I will not even attempt to list all of the animal and plant groups.
