Flying Penguin
Contest Directions: This Saturday we continue our freaking experiment with provided source images. Penguins are one of the very few birds (along with ostrich, emu, cassowary, rhea and kiwi) that can not actually fly. Penguin ancestors were flying birds, but as the climate in Antarctica became colder the pre-penguins evolved into fatter, heavier, and rounder birds and it became harder and harder to fly with such bodies. Eventually they "gave up" the flight and developed that distinctive walk on their short but strong legs, swaying their fat rounded bodies as they walk. But as today's picture shows us, even if penguins can fly no more, doesn't mean they should stop trying.
Photoshop this photo of a penguin jumping out of water in Antarctica any way you wish. Some examples - show how this penguin can fly, place it into some non-Arctic environment, etc.
Many thanks to Christopher Michel for providing the source photo.
