A tiny Nemicolopterus crypticus crawls around the twigs in search of insects. This micropterosaur had a wingspan of only around 10 inches, making it the size of a sparrow.

This is superb. No criticism of the anatomy... that's quite rare for me!

Thanks! I used your own skeletal on the referance, and I just got a book by chaterjee on the posture and locomotion of pterosaurs, so I'm starting to get a really good idea of their physiology, thanks in no small part to your own art!

Very lifelike pose. I love your drawings, they're so subtle and plausible.

Heh. The variation among pterosaurs is simply incredible. From 10 cm ones to small plane sized azdarchids...

Great job, as usual!
