Darwin Day Nature Photography Contest

To celebrate Darwin, the Horniman Museum (& Gardens!), the Grant Museum of Zoology, and the Society for Biology held a nature photography contest and the winners can be viewed here. Wow, that picture of lichen is fantastic, oh, and there's a frog sitting on top. Even in their own blurb the Horniman Museum left out the & Gardens part, and of course, the photographs are largely animals. But nice enough, but hardly representative of Darwin's work. He would have been in the & Gardens part. At least Darwin has been voted the 3d most important Brit ever. Let's see, is that after Elton John and Monty Python?
