DT card for Eureka Stamps challenge #196 - "wings"

I really like this penguin trying to stay cool.  When I chose the image, I certainly did not realize that the outside temperature here in Arizona would be a record breaking 115 - the earliest date recorded for that high a temperature!
Before submitting this card to a couple of challenges, I felt I had to verify some facts.  To find out if penguins have feathers and if they qualify as winged creatures, check out this website: .  Among other things you will learn is that penguins do in fact have knees, feathers and wings!
Challenge #196 at Eureka Stamps is "things with wings".  You have until 3pm EDT Sunday to enter as many as 3 times.  You may win some of the Eureka images.
