With Autumn just around the corner it is nearly the third Anniversary of Fossil Flip Thursday. Instagram has been a showcase in recent years for some outstanding fossil specimens. Some ammonites for example may be rough looking on one side, but when flipped over to reveal the other side they look exceptionally beautiful. Fossil Flip Thursday has seen some excellent videos of fossils, with many participants especially showing off their ammonite specimens on the day. I hope there will be a really large turn out to flip their fossils on the 22nd October 2020.In these unprecedented times at least one thing is for sure a lot of people will be flipping their fossils in the next weeks a head .Its always such a fun opportunity to show off fossils that you have found and prepared.
Fantastic Fossil Photos On Instagram .
A few weeks ago i joined Instagram.This is a service that allows users to share pictures and videos either publicly or privately.A good number of "fossilists"have shared some wonderful photographs of their fossil finds on Instagram.
Recently i uploaded an ammonite nodule,i had found when out fossil collecting.The fossil is filmed with the round part of the nodule showing in my hand.I then flip the stone over to reveal the ammonite inside the stone.I stipulate in the video description that" i can`t believe its flipping Thursday already."Its certainly true the weeks just fly by these days.The ammonite flipping phase certainly seems to be growing on Instagram every Thursday.If the trend continues in the next weeks the Fossil Flip Thursday Hashtag should see a lot more entries.
I have told people that flipping your fossil over a bed or cushion is good practice.Luckily so far i have managed to catch all my fossil specimens.Please follow us on Instagram @brandonfossils and you can see all our fossil videos there.The video directly below this text is one of the nodules that i have also shared on YouTube for people to view.
