How to present Evolution in picture form

PZ Myers, on his Pharnygula blog, posted two great images. One is the typical one we've seen many times that implies things about evolution that are not true.
I mean while this is an interesting representation, it is far too simple and linear to mean all that much. He posted another one that really gets the point across, but not exactly one I would try and teach a class with. I mean it's more like an eye chart:Click on it for the larger view. It s a great image and one I think you could sit in front of and think about for a long time. It is a better representation of the reality of evolution!
