A male reproductive organ deposited sperm into a female reproduction organ, where it could fertilize eggs - leading to baby ancestral tetrapods, mammals, primates, and eventually humans.

One cold weekday earlier this year, I convinced five friends to let me follow them around while they bought wine. We passed row after row of bottles, hundreds of images competing for our 10 to 15 dollars, from chateaus and vineyards to gold pheasants, floating bubbles, a goose mid-flight, and a man with an apple on his head. In split-second decisions, we rejected everything until each of us picked up one special bottle, looked at the label for a few seconds longer, and said to ourselves: sure, this looks good.
