    Beautiful pictures! I wondered onto your webpage by accident after my own fossil hunting trip in north-west Ireland and it is amazing to see that exactly the same treasures get washed up at both sides of the Atlantic.
    Anyway, amazing photos, I wish my own “photo a day” project was as amazing as yours but it definitely gives me a lot if inspiration!

p.s. these harmless little snakes with brick-red bellies were plentiful around here in my youth.  i was thrilled to see this little guy as i haven’t seen any in years.
