    Rock Identification Help

    Nice stones...I second the vote for basalt with quartz inclusions. I've had a look around and can't seem to find anywhere to buy stones that look like these. I'd have a look around quarries, if you haven't, you never know what you might find :)

    Where are all the Girls??

    *puts hand up* I'm female and been in the hobby since I was 11, but I'm an outdoorsy nerd. When I lived in America, I noticed quite a few more women in the hobby, but not so much in the UK.

    Need an id of These mosses.

    I'll gladly take some pics under my microscope for you. I could post them here and see if that helps people ID them? I'm working on our boat at the moment, so I won't be back for a few days. The pics won't be perfect, but they should help, if it's possible to ID them.

    Saintly's UK woodland observations

    Love the one with the ducks in the background and the flower shots. The detail is mind blowing on all of them, though! What camera/lens did you use on these?
