Google co-founder Sergey Brin, last seen wearing the company's computerized Google Glass spectacles at New York Fashion Week, posted a photo Monday on his Google Plus page of what he said were frigate birds above the Galapagos Islands.
As Brin wrote about the shot:
If Hitchcock's movie scared you, don't be afraid. Frigate birds are harmless except of course for the occasional dropping. Nonetheless, they along with other bird species can be an overwhelming sight at relatively untouched sanctuaries such as this one on Isla Genovesa in the Galapagos. Though it looks upside down, I shot this pretty much straight up from under a cliff overhang while dodging those little white bombs raining down.
Commenters speculated that the shot was also taken with Google Glass, but Brin has yet to confirm. Perhaps Brin was just scouting out Google's next awe-inspiring Google Maps Street View location.
