1. Careful, InSight -- GD doesn't like photos.

2. Here's the short caption from the mission's image gallery page...

During the press conference, the Irish space news reporter Leo Enright asked the mission team if they were proud to have landed on the 'most boring place' on the planet. (They were.)

NASA's InSight Mars lander acquired this image using its robotic arm-mounted, Instrument Deployment Camera (IDC).

This image was acquired on November 26, 2018, Sol 0 where the local mean solar time for the image exposures was 14:04:35. Each IDC image has a field of view of 45 x 45 degrees.
