Happy Birthday Charles Darwin

Happy Birthday Charles Darwin

Today is the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birth. But hey, you already knew that. All the images going around seem to have Darwin with a big white beard. But lets not forget that his Beagle voyage and much of his scientific work was completed when he was a young man. So this is really just an excuse to post an image of Darwin without a beard, this is a portrait from 1816 when he was 7 years old. I got it from the excellent Wikimedia Commons, and I really encourage you to post lots of evolutionary biology images there as free use content. There are many fewer images of Darwin, his work and other Darwin-related things than I thought there would be. I keep intending to take photos of some of his other books and post them, but last time I was struggling to get good shots- must try again.

A hat-tip to Google also for posting an excellent logo today.
