I keep wishing, with these images, that you'd include just a short description -- for instance, where the subject came from, maybe how far back similar fossils can be found or what epoch they start in (since the title says it's among the oldest), what the magnification / scale is...  You're picking great daily images, they're very pretty, but they would be greatly enriched with just a few sentences of extra information to help people see how they fit into the world.
