Can you name 26 bugs? Drawing a Northern Walking Stick

I have been working on The ABCs of Interesting Bugs! I drew & painted a not-quite-realistic bug (or insect) for every letter of the alphabet. Certainly nowhere near a scientific study…just a fun set of colorful whimsical bugs. Anyway, here is what the ABC poster looks like  (it is available sized for a nursery or classroom wall: 12”x 36”)  Whimsical …

Here is a simplified version of an old coal train…more …
