Berlin Archaeopteryx

Dave Hone posted a link list to his own posts with Archaeopteryx in them. A very handy thing to have, as Dave has the best archive of online photos of the beast. What he doesn’t have is close-ups of the Berlin specimen, so I thought today a good day to post a few. I recently was able to snap a few shots when Jingmai O’Connor was visiting Berlin and inspecting it – I do not wish to bother the curators for opening the safe and pulling the lil’ bird out when I do not have a real research interest.

Here’s a total; detail shots below the fold. As always, click through for larger size, or yell in comments/email for full size!

    “What he doesn’t have is close-ups of the Berlin specimen”. Actually I do, they’re just on film and I haven’t dug them out or scanned them or got permission to publish them. Yet. 🙂 Still, great to see these, thanks for sharing. It’s been too long since I’ve seen this one.
