Marty’s photo of the day #2065: Upon seeing this photo, a normal human being will likely say something like, “Awwww look at that cute ground squirrel!” But if you are Montana’s Republican candidate for US Congress, Greg Gianforte, you would say: “What can be more fun than to spend an afternoon shooting the little rodents?” […]

Watch out Martyman
Marty’s photo of the day #2063: Watch out Martyman! Here’s what Montana’s Republican candidate for Congress, Greg Gianforte, said before going out to shoot massive numbers of prairie dogs with Donald Trump Jr.: “What can be more fun than to spend an afternoon shooting the little rodents?” When the Republican Jesus heard that, he thought, […]
Happy Earth Day! Sorry, Republicans
Marty’s photo of the day #2161: Happy Earth Day! Sorry Republicans. I know this liberal day stands for everything you vote against, and that preserving the planet for future generations must really depress you. But don’t despair. Your holiday, Black Lungs Are Fun Day, is only a month away.
Marty’s photo of the day #2150: Here’s a toucan that I photographed in Costa Rica. This photo is also featured in my latest book, “Endangered Edens: Exploring the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Costa Rica, the Everglades, and Puerto Rico.”
Marty’s photo of the day #2149: Here’s one of my favorite fur seal photos. I took it on an island off the coast of Antarctica. These seals almost went extinct, due to over-hunting. Fortunately, international protection arrived just in time, and the seals have made a nice comeback.
Martyman does Bull Durham
Marty’s photo of the day #2147: If you remember where we left off yesterday, Martyman had a new body, and was getting his clothes washed. This morning, before I put Martyman’s clean clothes back on him, he insisted that I take this picture of him, impersonating Ebby Calvin “Nuke” LaLoosh, from his favorite movie, Bull […]
Martyman cleans up his act
Marty’s photo of the day #2146: If you remember where we left off yesterday, Martyman had taken a terrible fall and broken off both of his legs. Fortunately, years ago, I bought a backup body, should something ever happen to the original. As long as we were starting with a new Martyman body, I decided […]
Martyman loses his legs
Marty’s photo of the day #2145: Oh, nooooooooooo! Martyman and I were setting up a shot this morning (it was going to be really funny), when our hero lost his grip and fell from the back of a chair and broke off both of his legs. But don’t worry fans. We can rebuild him. We […]
Burton’s legless lizard
Marty’s photo of the day #2144: Here’s a Burton’s legless lizard that I photographed in Queensland, Australia. Why isn’t this a snake? It has external ear-openings, little skin flaps near its cloaca—where it used to have legs before it evolved—and if you grabbed its tail, the tail would fall off.
The Cactus-climbing starfish
Marty’s photo of the day #2142: The rare and endangered cactus-climbing starfish was, perhaps, my best find last year while hiking on Mexico’s Baja Peninsula. Very few people ever get the chance to see this unusual animal in the wild, as they’re quite shy. Also, as a photographer, I had to approach with caution. Spooking […]
