Very nice! The coloration suits the background nicely, and it looks very natural.

Only thing--it looks like you've restored the wings kite-folding WWD style, with the wing finger hyperextended. This wasn't possible IIRC, instead they folded backward along the posterior side of the arm like a switch-blade, like this: [link]

The near wing looks a bit funny on this one, scrunched up kinda strangely. It is very cute and I want one. I'm going to end up with this weird prehistoric critterpark the way I'm going ;)

More Peteinosaurii please - theyre my favourite. Sort of budgies of the Pterosaur genus - all over the place but because of that, ignored and forgotten. They deserve so much better......

Yes - Im just about to follow the link now but I still want MORE! NOW!

Only if I had a belt fed shotgun - Ijust love the way theyre always portrayed in the artwork - normally munching on the gigantic dragonflies of the period. It shows how 'advanced' and just what skilled and capable fliers they were - not just soaring about doing nothing constructive, including eating......

Theres a whole lot more to the pterosaurs than the majority of people think. MORE MORE MORE!!!

Indeed. Its really sickening that most people still think pterosaurs were prehistoric seabird/bat things, when in RL they were just as diverse as birds and bats. Peteinosaurus's closest relative, Dimorphodon, for example, was proven out recently to had been a bad flier and a good climber, indicating that it was an arboreal predator perhaps. I don't know if Peteinosaurus was a good flier or not, but it certainly was an interesting insect eater.

The Hobby of the pterosaur world - people think of pteranodon first and imagine they were all huge. OK, there were some truly enormous and spectacular examples, but the diversity amongst the species is absolutely fascinating - as is the basics of how they actually flew and the biological adaptations that allowed them to do so - aerofoil arm/wing bones? That really is one hell of a way to aid their flight...... As for Dimorphodon, climbing would have been an energy saving solution to gain height given their overall poor flapping flight (compared to modern birds that is)

Pterosaur flapping would actually had been quite efficient, much like bats they had the muscles that pull the wing up attached on the back, unlike birds which have all of the wing muscles attached to the chest. The rest is that the pterosaur (and bat) keels aren't as developed as in birds because the muscles are evenly distributed above and below the wing joints, instead of being all concentrated on the same spot.

I have no doubts Dimorphodon climbed trees to gain height, though it wouldn't need to climb in order to take off. Much like modern fowl it had short, broad wings, which were likely flapped very fast when taking off. It would have the gliding factor very reduced due to the large head and general large body proportions though

Now I didnt know that about pterosaur anatomy so thanks for that, it answers a load of questions and presents a load more.......Theres an interesting group called The Wing Is The Thing (TWITT.org) that you might like to have a look at - some interesting stuff on flapping flight in general last time I looked (some time ago to be honest)
