A bug in Google Earth

If you've been reading my blog, you're probably well aware that I'm a big fan of Google Earth...but even Google Earth has bugs sometimes. Like this one!

Apparently there is NOT a 50-yard long killer insect devouring the forests and fields of Germany, but rather some adventurous insect managed to crawl its way onto the glass plate used in the scanning process. Somebody at Google Earth has gone so far as to actually identify the's a thrips, very small bug at about 1mm long. Not a lot of people would have known that :-)
