My Year of Darwin 11/08/2014: a profound admission

 Charles Darwin

"Our ignorance of the laws of variation is profound." Charles Darwin, Origin of Species 1st edition (on Kindle)

I have to admit I found the chapter "Laws of Variation" boring - really boring. And I love this stuff. Lots of examples without much synthesis and the examples were mostly pigeons and barnacles with a number of pages on horses. 

Three-wattled Bellbird from Central America. These guys are on my bucket list. LOVE THEM!
