the Twig-tailed Beetle Snatcher
Hey all. Here's what I managed for this weeks C.O.W. contest
The Twig-Tailed Beetle-Snatcher
Here we see the voracious snatcher downing a snack while spearing his next helping using his well-adapted digitations. A member of aves, the snatcher shares similar morphology. His bushy twig-like tail is comprised of modified feathers, and his spear-like fingers are simply elongations of a birds usual semi-vestigial digits. Using it's unique cover, this flightless bird waits in ambush for its prey. Then, a swift stab from a finger insures an accurate snare.
The cow this week was an open topic -- be sure to check out the rest of the work over there in the voting thread.

This is really interesting. It bothers me a bit that you lose the animal's feet due to the lack of contrast at the ground level. Same for the left wing?? Maybe a little higher value in those areas would help. Not too much though to as to maintain the balance that I think you are looking for by using the values you have.
