Nature photography, political rants, and Martyman laughs from the ten-time award-winning author of "Cool Creatures, Hot Planet," "Endangered Edens," and the "Time Is Irreverent" series.

Borneo Bridal Suite

Bridal Suite


Marty’s photo of the day #1634: Those who have read my first book, Cool Creatures, Hot Planet, know all about this photo. Deb and I were backpacking somewhere in the middle of Borneo with a guide from the legendary—but reformed—headhunting tribe, the Iban. Halfway through our expedition, our guide passed us off to a new group of Iban—we had just  met—and we spent the night here, in one of their hunting lodges. Or, as I called it, “the Bridal Suite.”

BTW: The netting wasn’t to protect us from hungry mosquitoes; it was to protect us from hungry land leeches.
