Darwin Finch

Darwin Finch, originally uploaded by lindsontheroad.

Happy new year! For the first photo of 2011 I thought I’d draw upon an evolutionary-ish theme. This little guy is the Darwin Finch of the Galapagos, so named for Charles Darwin, that explorer and evolutionist (I’m sure you’ve heard of him). I saw this little bird when I visited the Galapagos in September 2007, and I love the gold-ness of the sand and his place in the photo…he’s just so cute!
