A Bird Fossil in the Making
Shot this photo of a mummified bird encrusted in the exposed dry lake bed of the Great Salt Lake. The waters seem to be receding exposing all kinds of interesting stuff. I bet, if left untouched, this will become a fossil in another 2-3 million years. It looks like one right now! :)
