On the theme of evolution...

I was thinking about Darwin and this image popped into my head. I just had to get it down on paper, so here it is!

Darwin and Evolution

A subject close to my heart. This year sees the bicentenary of Darwin's birth and various events and TV programmes are celebrating his life and his work. For me the highlight so far was David Attenborough's 'Charles Darwin and the Tree of Life' on the BBC.
