Hello, beautiful!

A magnificent fossil find in Germany as researchers uncovered an Archaeopteryx specimen missing only its head!

The impression of feathers is particularly clear.

The discovery is outlined in some detail at the i09 blog or you can read about the find at Nature and the Smithsonian’s Dinosaur Tracking page.
