Hi Don:

By now I hope you have seen Dan Bright's color-modified images
here:

[Thanks Dan]

To my untrained eye, and allowing for the cautions Dan made
regarding altered colors, it looks more and more like a flying
insect (note the wings) and less like the domed saucer shape I
thought I had made out earlier.

What it doesn't look like (to me) is a bird.

It could be one thing disguised to look like another, but I
think that's stretching things.


Best wishes

- Larry
