How to help the Beagle Project: post your pics!

Thanks to everyone who has been supporting us by donating via our PayPal buttons (keep it comin'!) and by buying Beagle Project gear in our shops (keep it comin'!).  A special shout out to Bloggers-for-Beagle who have posted pics of themselves in Beagle Project tees:

    
Left to right: Michael Barton of The Dispersal of Darwin, Kevin Zelnio of The Other 95% and Deep Sea News and Miriam Goldstein (and Cthulhu) of The Oyster's Garter.

We'd like to invite all of our readers to now post their own photographs to our new HMS Beagle Project Flickr group (set up by Anna Faherty, for which many thanks).  The purpose of this Flickr group is not only to build up a pool of fun pics from friends of the BP but also to supply us with a steady stream of Creative Commons licensed photos that we can use free of charge in our fundraising materials, websites, etc.  Specifically, we're looking for photos:
  • of you in/with your Beagle Project gear
  • from your travels to Beagle ports of call (not sure where the Beagle went? check here)
  • of you scientists doing your field work
  • of tall ships' rigging and other maritime close-ups
  • of students and children doing sciencey "field work" or "lab work"
Thanks to all who've already been contributing (keep it comin'!).

Is Miriam practicing to lead the HMS Beagle "Yoga with Cthulhu" classes? LOL

OK OK OK, I joined Flickr like everyone else. I guess I will stop using Picasa...

Now I can upload darwinian delights to the pool.

The Beagle Project meets Flickr. I've died and gone to heaven!

But who is this handsome chap?

How about a 2009 Bloggers-for Beagle Calendar!

So why isn't the photo of Peter with that tiny boat in the pool? And the minuscule Darwin with the minuscule red notebook.

Kevin - Mighty Cthulhu does not salute the sun - the sun salutes Cthulhu.

Karen - have added some Galapagos photos to the Beagle flickr site. I went there on a research trip (!!!awesome!!!) in 2003. Have tons more if you want them.
