About this image

Do you see what I see? The connected craters at the top and bottom of this image look like bugs, perhaps a bumble bee at the top and a wasp at the bottom. When pieces of a meteor strike the surface side by side, craters are formed that are divided by a straight wall and the ejecta tends to form "wings" along the trend of that wall.
