Is an angel a type of insect?

Insects have 6 limbs, right? Every time I see a depiction of an angel, they have 2 legs, 2 arms, and 2 wings... doest that make them a type of insect?


An angel's wings are shown like a bird's wings, so they would be adapted "legs" - I understand that insects have 1 or 2 pair or wings in addition to their 6 legs, but what has 4 legs and 1 pair of wings!? Angels must have evolved from wingless insect whose middle (or top) pair of legs (arms) became bird-like wings.

    Insects have 6 legs, plus wings (for those with wings).

    So, no, angels are not insects!

    No, that doesn't make them a type of insect.

    you're getting them confused with a praying mantis

    anyway... insects have three sections:

    a head, a thorax, and an abdomen

    No, a type of fictional character in a fantasy.
