Thursday/ guide to splattered bugs

This interesting ‘guide to splattered bugs’ is posted at some ’76’ gas stations here in Seattle.  (Thanks to Bryan for sending me the picture!).   ’76’ is a brand from Conoco-Philips oil company and is well represented here in Seattle.    Anyway, once you have identified your splattered bug, the guide will tell you the insect’s classification order as well.     Insects are classified into 29 orders in total.   The ladybug (top row on the right) actually belongs to the largest order, one with some 300,000 species of beetles, weevils and fireflies.
