Big File Warning!
Part 1: [link]
Part 3: [link]
Told ya I wasn't going to stop in the first part. My dragon wing ramblings still continue to bug you who are brave or stupid enough to read it through. Sorry for the text heavy start, in my files this whole thing is just one single collection of papers (this second part consisting of pages 6-10)
On a side note: I can has camera! 8D So I decided to put it in good use. Since my little scribble of my kingfisher skin is small, ugly and inaccurate, here's a photo of the real thing: [link]
If you need/want more photos, just bark at me, and I'll snap some more.
More to come.
Also: Please, correct me if I'm wrong. But keep in mind that you must prepare some reasoning for it, as I am a geek with no life, who likes to think and discuss about these things.
Oh, and before I forget: When I said in there that the head of the kingfisher is as long as the rest of the body, I meaned the part between the neck and tail. Tail is just feathers, I didn't include it in my sentence. (And probably made myself look pretty stupid).
Wow, I just have actually found a real life example of hind-leg wings. (well, they aren't suit for flying, but gliding, but nevertheless) Check this out! [link]
Just when you think you know pretty much of the real creatures, the mother nature comes and slaps you in the face by bringing up something like this. Awesome!
