Tidbits : Treasuries from the Schlei

Beautiful radiant fossil

My camera died on me 2 days ago, no idea what's wrong. Somehow, he made all pictures very dark and unsharp. I always use the autofocus and never studied the thing further. I looked on the internet and found the instruction booklet for my camera on line. After some fidling around, I think I got it. Using the functions and not the autofocus made the pictures I took not so dark anymore and some were reasonably sharp. So, I hope I remember what I did ....
Fossil that looks like a mouth ?

I found some treasuries along the Schlei in the last couple of weeks. They were my camera test models. So, here they are !
Fossilized sea urchin




No idea what this is, but there are lots of fossils !

Interesting finds!
The urchins looks more like a sand dollar or something, the shape doesn't look like an urchin to me.

But sand dollars are flat ?? or not ? This one is a big ball.

Oh my, oh my! Wonderful fossils you got!
The last one is a coral, and the first one is too!
I love that sea urchin!
I'd love to tell you more about them, but I'd have to see the place where you picked them first..
