Lightbulb New Discovery on the Origin of Feathers

I thought this article was absolutely fascinating and had to share:

Can you imagine? It's so cool to see feathers so perfectly preserved in amber like that...

Thanks for sharing Jenny! That is really amazing. I can't believe how well preserved they were. I've only ever seen bugs in amber before!
