Ps.
Do I remember reading somewhere that there was something important 'bout dragonflies that helped consolidate Darwin's contribution to what we know 'bout the world we live in? Or am I thinking of another couple of bichos...?

Thanks Sue & TP,

It's funny, although I was born the day before Darwin I don't feel that old!
I'm not sure about the dragonfly connection with Darwin, though I'm sure my favourite insects must have attracted his attention somewhere along the line.

This morning I was greeted by banners proclaiming my status as an old man, a birthday cake with huge show of flames coming off the top of it & my son playing Malaguena on his acoustic guitar! So the sound of the Iberian peninsula was part of my birthday celebrations.

Thanks again for the birthday greetings, I've really enjoyed my first year of being a part of the Iberianature community.

Steve

PS Enjoy your Darwin Day celebrations!
