Animals with Wings
Contest Directions: A cat in China has grown two wings on its back. The owner says her cat looks like an angel. This is another proof that Chinese pet food makes angels out of many pets. Others are still alive.
In this contest you are asked to add wings to any non-winged animals, except humans. Feel free to make the animals with wings look photo realistic, or use paintings as sources.

This contest is fueled by the following news: Ancient wise men used to say that a bird flight is a great symbol of creation. Flapping bird flight is surprisingly energy effective. White hawk grabs and lifts the prey of up to 3 times heavier that itself. No aircraft of modern days can achieve such efficiency. Plovers have an average wing span of just 21 inches, flight non-stop during their seasonal migrations with an average speed of 60 miles per hour, when they travel from Auletian Islands to Hawaii. In order to evaluate this flight, we should compare it not to fligh of a jet aircraft but to those of propeller planes, which push down air. Propeller airplanes also fly about 2000 miles without refueling, but the physical size of such plane exceed the size of plover over 30 times. Which means that plover is 30 times more efficient than propeller plane. As much as humans would like to muster and use the technical principles of flapping bird flight, these principles are still not fully understood by modern science, which still treats bird flight as a miracle of nature. Hopelessly trying not only to imitate bird flight but also to understand how it can be possible within the laws of aerodynamics, modern science builds its greedy and capricious airplanes which use wings creating the lifting power, but not the thrust. Meanwhile, flapping wings of birds elegantly combine these two functions based on engineering concept, striking by its simplicity. Lets recall that almost all birds, except for perhaps the smallest ones, possess the technique of a gliding flight. Some of them have polished this technique down to perfection: sea birds demonstrate the miracles of flying, when they rely on energy of wind, at times seemingly freezing in one spot flying against the front wind. The simple fact is that spawned and fixed bird wings create a lifting power with sufficient streamline speed. However the flapping movements of wings are needed not for creation of lifting power, but for thrust.
