For right-wing fifteen-year-olds who didn’t know . . .
Marty’s photo of the day #4315: Every time I get embarrassed about living in the backward state of Montana, some other primitive state, such as Idaho, Wyoming, Utah, Mississippi, or Florida reminds me, “Hey, it could be worse.” I’m sure many of you saw the story about the Florida principal who got fired for allowing […]
Pronghorns on the prairie
Marty’s photo of the day #4314: Deb, Nellie, and I spent a week at Montana’s American Prairie each of the last two years. This year we will be skipping that trip to take on some other outdoor adventures. Today’s photo is from our first visit to the American Prairie. Pronghorns are the fastest land animal […]

The world is a scary place . . .

A leopard in the dusk
Marty’s photo of the day #4308: That time when you’re in the African bush after sunset and you feel something big is looking at you. I photographed this leopard in Zimbabwe. It was quite dark out, and I really had to push my camera to create this image.
A random penguin photo
Marty’s photo of the day #4307: I’m having a very busy day today. And many of you know what that means: a penguin photo! I opened up my Antarctica photo file and this was quite literally the first penguin photo I saw that I haven’t posted before. These are gentoo penguins.
Surrounded by wolves!
Marty’s photo of the day #4306: Now that I have my brand new Ford Maverick truck, Deb, Nellie, and I are planning to head into far north Canada this fall. I took this photo the last time Deb and I made the trip. This is the 362-mile-long Campbell Highway, a gravel road that crosses the […]
From another angle
Marty’s photo of the day #4305: Having posted over four thousand “photos of the day,” with the goal of never posting the same photo twice, sometimes I have to really think to remember if I’ve posted a particular photo. Icebergs are especially difficult. I know I’ve shown this iceberg before, but I don’t think I’ve […]
That awkward moment . . .
Marty’s photo of the day #4304: That awkward moment when the child is bigger than the parent and still wants to be fed. Gentoo penguins, photographed off the coast of Antarctica.
Marty’s photo of the day #4302: Since people seemed to like yesterday’s butterfly from Belize, here’s another one from the same location. This butterfly is called an owl butterfly, because when it opens its wings, the big spot on each wing creates the illusion of owl eyes.
