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.

The Sunflower of Happiness


Marty’s photo of the day #1922: Watching Donald Trump slice into Hillary Clinton’s lead in the past few weeks has been depressing. The good guys are always supposed to win. Right? We aren’t a country of ignorance, bigotry, and hate. Right? Well, last night’s debate raised my spirits. And unless something unprecedented happens, Hillary should be up an additional 3 to 5 points in the polls by the end of the week.
With my new, sunny post-debate outlook, I thought a happy photo was in order. And what could be happier than a Maximilian sunflower? Hell, Donald Trump is the antithesis of happy, but even he would have to make a loud sniff—and then another loud sniff—and say is was a “beautiful and bigly thing.”
