Yeah, I know I’m late for Darwin Day. It took me a bit to find the picture I remembered.  This is by Carl Buell, and it imagines a young Darwin on the Galapagos.  As Buell pointed out, the iconic images of Darwin — check out any of the scores or hundreds that were posted on Darwin’s 200th — is of the elderly, bearded, solemn sage, after Origin was published.   Think instead of the young Darwin, playful and imaginative, the man who sailed around the world, roared up mountains, who rode horses through Brazil and tortoises through the Galapagos.
