To Fly or not to Fly…

Now… I know some people are going to be not precisely happy with a flying Archaeopteryx (it was a poor one after all, if it was at all)… however, as you can see here it is not flying higher than those very adept pterosaurs in the sky. I incorporated some of the information regarding leg feathers in Archaeopteryx as provided in http://archosaurmusings.wordpress.com/2008/10/26/the-changing-legs-of-archaeopteryx/

This digital artwork was done as a tribute to the work of Peter Wellnhofer and presented in person at the Pterosaur Symposium in Munich 2007. I specially owe the opportunity for the completion of this artwork to David Hone that very aptly organised the unforgettable event.
