Ecoconfuciusornis

OK, this is just beautiful. 

This new fossil is amazing.  The classic Archeopteryx is beautiful, but look at those feathers! Ecoconfuciusornis is beautiful.  Hell, I'm a microbiologist, I don't do things with nuclei, but wow!  What else is China holding back on us?

The column is quite sparse with the information, and I'll have to wait for someone with a more paleo bent to help me understand this finding's place in the great bush that is life on this planet, but I just thought this was too frickin cool not to mention.
