Damn me from the past!

Damn me from the past!

Marty’s photo of the day #2685: I try to avoid posting the same photo twice, but sometimes I forget. This morning I was going through my Borneo photos and came across this frog. I did a little sharpening and a little cropping but couldn’t remember the species name. I have several identification books, but since […]

Traitors to their own.

Traitors to their own.

An article in today’s Missoulian features the president of the Lewis & Clark Republican Women’s club all giddy because the Matt Kavanaugh hearing invigorated her cult. Yes, the club’s membership of creepy white women has actually grown. How sad that Christine Blasey Ford—terrified but brave, forced out of her house because of death threats, and […]

Along the Macal River

Along the Macal River

Marty’s photo of the day #2684: I took this photo while canoeing on the Macal River in Belize. Iguanas, like this one, live in the trees along the riverbank.

Martyman plays for Melania Trump

Martyman plays for Melania Trump

Upon hearing Melania Trump claim, “I’m the most bullied person on the world,” Martyman decided to get out the world’s smallest violin to play the world’s saddest song on her behalf. Either that or he just finished reading Stormy Daniels’ book and is trying to visualize Donald Trump’s Mushroom Mario Kart. I’m not sure which.

Look closely . . .

Look closely . . .

Marty’s photo of the day #2683: I took this photo in Canada’s Northwest Territories. If you look carefully, you can see hundreds of Porcupine caribou, in the midst of their 800 mile-long migration—the longest of any land animal. Later, Deb and I would meet up with the caribou and hike with them for a short […]

Hanging out with the whales

Hanging out with the whales

Marty’s photo of the day #2682: What was the highlight of my travels to all seven continents? Spending two hours with three humpback whales (two adults and a baby) along the coast of Antarctica.

Gentoo peguins

Gentoo peguins

Marty’s photo of the day #2681: “Boss. De plane! De plane!” (Gentoo penguins—photographed on Antarctica)

Brett Kavanaugh please report to . . .

Brett Kavanaugh please report to . . .

“On behalf of our nation, I would like to apologize to Brett and his family for the terrible pain and suffering that you have been forced to endure.” —Donald Treason Trump (at Brett Blackout Kavanaugh ceremonial swearing-in) “On behalf of our 65,844,954 sane American voters, I would like to apologize to the rest of the […]

Amazon Rainforest

Amazon Rainforest

Marty’s photo of the day #2680: Ever wonder what it looks like standing in the middle of the Amazon Rainforest? Here you go! Now, find your way out. (Photographed in Peru)

The intelligent alligator

The intelligent alligator

Marty’s photo of the day #2679: I love alligators! Here’s a short blurb from my second book, “Endangered Edens: Exploring the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Costa Rica, the Everglades, and Puerto Rico”: Scientists consider crocodilians, including alligators, to be the most intelligent of the reptiles. Not only can they learn travel patterns of potential prey, […]

Tiny Frog

Tiny Frog

Marty’s photo of the day #2678: Here’s a tiny frog, photographed in the Amazon Rainforest of Peru.

The compliant Supreme (Right) Court

The compliant Supreme (Right) Court

Marty’s photo of the day #2677: Readers of my novel Time Is Irreverent take note: President Handley now has his “compliant Supreme Court.”

Stop the vote!

Stop the vote!

Marty’s photo of the day #2676: Yes, sometimes Martyman has too much to drink and passes out in the gutter. But he never attempts to rape anyone, never sticks his dick in anyone’s face (other than that unfortunate incident with a Tasmanian devil he refuses to discuss), never starts bar fights, never rages in paranoia […]

Tiny, tiny, tiny

Tiny, tiny, tiny

Marty’s photo of the day #2675: There are many species of green tree frog in the Amazon Rainforest, often with subtle differences. This is the tiniest one I photographed in Peru. She could fit on your thumbnail.

Yellow wild rose

Yellow wild rose

Marty’s photo of the day #2674: Here’s a yellow wild rose, photographed while hiking in Montana.

Oh, the hangover!

Oh, the hangover!

Marty’s photo of the day #2673: This is a female elephant seal, on an island off the coast of Antarctica. She looks sick—or like Brett Kavanaugh waking up after a night of light drinking—but she’s perfectly fine. She’s just in the midst of molting.

Republicans are the definition of hypocrisy

Republicans are the definition of hypocrisy

Definition of hypocrisy: Republicans refusing to hold confirmation hearings for Supreme Court justice nominee Merrick Garland and ultimately keeping the court seat vacant for 422 days; then having a whiny temper tantrum about a short delay in the appointment of sexual predator, mean drunk, multiple perjurer, cultist nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, while one of his victims […]

Marty’s photo of the day #2672: This is the wet tropical forest in the interior of Puerto Rico.
