Marty’s photo of the day #2919: That look you give someone when they say they support Donald Trump, but it has nothing to do with disliking or being afraid of brown people. (Black-headed gull in winter plumage, photographed this past December in Italy.)

Stop using the Bible to justify discrimination!
Yesterday, as their contribution to LGBT Pride Month, the Catholic Church rejected that people can be intersex or transgender by issuing a bigoted document called “Male and Female He Created Them.” One thing followers of the Bible have failed to realize is that people are better educated today and more likely to do a little […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2918: This is a whipsnake—quite harmless—that I photographed in the Amazon Rainforest of Peru.
Marty’s photo of the day #2917: Today we go artsy again, with a photo I took looking through an iceberg to a mountain on Antarctica.
Marty’s photo of the day #2916: What is the most colorful bird found in Montana? My vote is for the western tanager. My writing room is on the second floor, and it has a window wall facing the mountains. Not a day goes by that some bird flying by doesn’t distract me from my work. […]
Every country has its unique problems
Marty’s photo of the day #2915: Every country has its unique problems. In America, it’s a cult leader president with a narcissistic personality disorder, gun fetishes, and the fear of assertive women; and in Australia it’s wallabies insisting on a pool-water chaser after drinking their bottle of wine.
Marty’s photo of the day #2914: Here’s another photo from my second book, Endangered Edens: Exploring the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Costa Rica, the Everglades, and Puerto Rico. It’s a green iguana, photographed in Puerto Rico.

Marty’s photo of the day #2911: Here’s a humpback whale that I photographed off the coast of Antarctica. The whale was roughly 45 feet long.
Marty’s photo of the day #2910: I haven’t posted a Canada photo recently, so here’s a porcupine photo from Deb’s and my adventure to the top of Canada, for the North American chapter in my first book, Cool Creatures, Hot Planet: Exploring the Seven Continents.
From the deep dark rainforest of Borneo
Marty’s photo of the day #2909: While working on my first book, Cool Creatures, Hot Planet: Exploring the Seven Continents, Deb and I were only the third outsiders to backpack with the Iban (a reformed headhunting tribe) across a special section of Borneo’s rainforest. You can read about our adventure in my book, so I […]
