Nature photography, political rants, and Martyman laughs from the ten-time award-winning author Marty Essen

When butterflies deliver your mail

Marty’s photo of the day #2871: I dedicate today’s photo to Wanda LaCroix. She lives in Grecia, Costa Rica, and on February 1st I mailed her a copy of my new novel, “Time Is Irreverent 2: Jesus Christ, Not Again!” According to USPS tracking, the book traveled from Victor, Montana to Missoula to San Francisco to Switzerland to Greece and finally to Mexico. The latest tracking info shows that as of February 20, the package is “in transit” from Mexico to Costa Rica. What does today’s photo have to do with all of that? You are looking at a postman butterfly that I photographed in Costa Rica. Obviously, these postman butterflies have to work hard to carry a book. I commend Costa Rica for their green economy, but perhaps a postman eagle or a postman monkey would be more effective.
