  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Here is an image with a big "Wow" for my taste. First, it is not a butterfly. The photograph is not too bad. But the effect Wow, is what is in the image itself. One may see here the first forms of life, 3.5 billion years ago. With a little imagination you can see here a group photograph ... fossil. Look, we all are here ! -- Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 11:19, 22 February 2013 (UTC)[reply]

These are micro-organisms (a few microns) capable of producing limestone, the manner, coral corraliens. I add links to the caption.--Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 09:15, 23 February 2013 (UTC)[reply]
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info It is a fossil stromatolite. Stromatolites are formed over the years by mats (1-10 mm in thickness) of microorganisms (cynobacteria among others) found in shallow, mainly marine waters. The microorganisms precipitate mineral particles, which makes the mat to thicken, but only the upper part survives. Most stromatolites display characteristically layered structures. Only the layers are visible to the naked eye. --Cayambe (talk) 11:36, 23 February 2013 (UTC)[reply]
