Marty’s photo of the day #2472: As a liberal, I try to avoid grouping people in stereotypes. But sometimes you can’t argue with their accuracy. For instance, I have neighbors who have been known to shoot off their guns in such rapid succession that I can smell the gunpowder more than a quarter mile away. […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2471: This is a smoky jungle frog, photographed in the Amazon Rainforest of Peru.
Marty’s photo of the day #2470: Much has happened this morning, so I’m running late. And when that happens, there’s only one thing to do: dip into my massive collection of penguin photos. Ah . . . here’s one now! It’s an Adélie penguin that I photographed on a tiny island off the coast of […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2469: This photo is from a few years ago. Every year, moose hang out on the property we own around our house. I’m looking forward to seeing them again this spring.
Marty’s photo of the day #2468: I took this photo along the coast of Puerto Rico. I love the feel of this shot: a fisherman getting in a few last casts before the storm moves in. Oh, and standing off to the side, just out of the picture, is Donald Trump. Should the storm suddenly […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2467: When Deb and I visited Antarctica we had several unforgettable, up-close encounters with humpback whales. I took this photo from our Zodiac (a rubber raft). On this outing, two whales played with our Zodiac—coming in above the water fast, diving under us at the last second, and surfacing on […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2466: This is a spotted sandpiper, photographed in Costa Rica.
Marty’s photo of the day #2465: Sorry, I don’t know what kind of plant this is. All I can tell you is that I photographed it while exploring western Spain in 2003. Whatever it is, it’s pretty cool.
Marty’s photo of the day #2464: I think we need a warm-weather shot today. Costa Rica!
Marty’s photo of the day #2463: I can’t believe it’s been fifteen years since I held up the world! This excerpt from my book Cool Creatures, Hot Planet: Exploring the Seven Continents explains the shot: I had a debt to pay for our successful Antarctica landing. Besides Shackleton and Neptune, another larger-than-life being had been […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2462: Today we go scenic with a photo I took several years ago while on a speaking tour in northern California.
Marty’s photo of the day #2461: This is a vervet monkey, photographed in Zimbabwe.
Marty’s photo of the day #2460: This is a young Jesus Christ lizard, ready to make his on-top-of-the-water run. The lizards do their run on their hind legs and are hilarious to watch. (Photographed in Costa Rica. From my book, Endangered Edens: Exploring the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Costa Rica, the Everglades, and Puerto Rico.)
Marty’s photo of the day #2459: This is Frog, a frogmouth bird I made friends with in Australia. He’s a rescue animal, who can no longer fly. What he lacked in flight ability, he made up for with personality.
Marty’s photo of the day #2458: One of the things I love about photography is that it helps me see items that I wouldn’t notice with the naked eye. We’ve all seen Canadian geese, but have you ever seen water droplets bead up on their chests? When I took this photo the lighting was perfect, […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2457: I photographed this giant moth while night-hiking on the island of Borneo. Fortunately, it was unsuccessful at picking me up and carrying me to its lair.
Marty’s photo of the day #2456: Aah . . . it’s a baby Amazon tree boa! (Photographed in the Amazon Rainforest of Peru.)
Marty’s photo of the day #2455: King of all he surveys. (Bighorn sheep, photographed in southern Idaho.)
Marty’s photo of the day #2454: I photographed this many-scaled anole in Costa Rica. Hmm . . . what can I say about this little lizard? “He had lots of scales.”
Marty’s photo of the day #2453: I think pronghorns are such beautiful animals. I photographed these two in Arizona, but they wouldn’t look out of place in the African bush.
