Lucy and the little girl

There's been a lot of talk lately of framing science (in particular evolutionary biology) for the American populace. Here's how I'd frame evolution for them:

little girl (sadly not to my knowledge called Lucy) looking reconstructed Australopithecus afarensis in the eye.

This isn't going to become a paleontology blog - there are more than enough fantastic blogs around run by proper experts on the subject - but I am gonna use a few fossil photos on posts over the next few weeks to make a few points because frankly I rather like some of my NYMNH shots.
