  1. I'm 53 and have been listening to Sir David for as long as I can remember. I'm pretty sure I was watching Marlin Perkins first, but that's a trivial point. Sir David is proof of how being passionate about something and staying active in it keeps your body and mind as young as possible. I'm sure good genetics has something to do with it, but, I applaud you, sir, and congratulations on your newly name dragonfly. Thank you for being you.

  2. This is fantastic and very much deserved! Congratulations, Sir David! Thank you for all your wonderful contributions to the world of nature and science!
