Chasing Beetles, Finding Darwin

"... From so simple a beginning, endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved."

It's been over 150 years since Charles Darwin published On the Origin of Species. Yet, his ideas remain as central to scientific exploration as ever.

  1. Great video, especially since ground beetles are the focus. Inspiration to go collecting! Only, I wish winter wasn't just around the corner!

  2. I enjoyed it too. Beetles and Darwin, ... you can't go wrong.

    Let's see if the winter rain(s) get to California this year (= Pleocoma).

    Thanks for the visit and comment.
