    It's a giant infra-red bee!

    It's a very nice #doublelobe likely produced by SDSS J095855.37+320435.0, which has a photometric redshift of ~0.56 (it's the IR source ~midway between the two radio sources). The field is a fascinating mix of stars in our own galaxy, a disturbed - fairly local - galaxy (CGCG 153-007), and at least one distant rich cluster of galaxies!

    Here's the field, centered on what I think is the galaxy causing the radio, as seen by SDSS:
