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.

Penguins say Happy Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, and LGBTQ Pride Month

Marty’s photo of the day #2923: Happy Father’s Day! One thing about penguins is that you can’t easily tell their sex by looks or behavior. Is this really a daddy penguin feeding his chick? Or is it a mommy penguin feeding her chick? I could use this same photo to wish people a Happy Mother’s Day. Additionally, there are numerous recorded instances of gay penguins raising chicks too. So I could even use this photo to wish people a Happy LGBTQ Pride Month. This is, of course, why Mike Pence refuses to eat alone with penguins—especially when alcohol is served.
