Aha, yeah, it has been reposted...quite a bit at this point. I've sort of decided not to fight Pinterest as long as they keep the source credit on there.

Smart! I have so many social media sites already that I just don't want to bother with Pinterest.

Granted, I said that about Instagram too and now have an account...

My pleasure! :) 

I want to make a bunch of these science resources to help people design creatures - let me know if you can think of any other helpful things!

Hi Alithographica!
I found this image while designing an interpretive program about bird flight, to be given with live birds of prey. This program is a part of a master's capstone project, so I need to get permission from sources as it will be published on the digital commons and viewable by others.
Would you be willing to give me permission to use it? I'd be linking back to the image directly as well as a link to your personal page. I can also include anything else you'd like to reference.
Thanks!
Jenna

Hi!

Yes, as long as the final product is not-for-profit and provides credit, you're absolutely welcome to use it. If it's viewable by the public I'd love to see it!

Super, super!
Nope, it's for educating middle schoolers and credit will be shared! I can send you a link after the whole thing is uploaded online.
Thank you so much!

This is awesome! Kind of makes me want to do pics of characters with the type of wing that would work best for them.
