Here's another picture of me, with an avatar I bought recently:
The avatar is called Common Raven; it looks and moves astonishingly lifelike. When walking, it hops along; standing, it'll preen occasionally and do that cocking its head to look at things bit. And flying --
Flying in Second Life is always fun, mind; you're _flying_, for heaven's sake. But flying as a bird, when the bird is flapping its wings accurately and swooping and diving and hovering, and drifting to the ground with gentle wingbeats, that's a _joy_.
And then it's even cooler, because I am wearing a fez.
