I'll discuss it. First, what is the most impressive example of
mutation/natural selection that has been observed to happen?

Very interesting. What type of phenotypic changes occurred? What
gene was mutated? Was it a point mutation? Where did the mutation
occur - in the coding region or a regulatory region?
