I know where these photos are from - and it's not what you think it is.
Back in 2003, I traveled to London for vacation and while I was at the museum of natural history, there was a small side art exhibit in display cases.
The art work was by some cool artist who explored the question: What might future archaeologists 100 million years from now find in the fossil
record about the future of humanity?
I will have to dig up the photos I took of the exhibit because it was AWESOME. All the fossils had little scientific name tags in Latin to describe
the names and epochs of these hypothetical fossils. The artist started out with fossils from our current technology: fossilized circuit boards,
Then not very long after they begin to see fossils of circuits embedded in human skeletons, then human forms begin to change (suggesting genetic
sciences attempts to make new creatures) and that is what that photo of winged small creature was from in the OP's article.
It was very cool and very imaginative. It appears that someone has taken photos of that artwork and is creating a hoax out of it that these things
have actually been found now, in our time.
I will have to prove this to you all when I get home tonight after work. I have the photos, so please be patient. Sorry to break the bad news.
