Wing of the Nose

We just learned about the Nasal Ridge.

Another part of the nose is the Wing of the Nose also called the Ala of the Nose.

This is the lower part of the nose that spreads out wide where the nostrils are, almost like a wing shape.
The word "ala" is Latin and means "wing".

(from: wikipedia - human nose)
