Canadian porcupine

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.

It’s about time . . .

It’s about time . . .

Marty’s photo of the day #2793: I’ve been rejecting posting this photo practically since I started posting photos. The reason is that this aspen forest looked so much cooler in person than it does in the picture. But since I’ve been passing by this photo for so many years, it’s going up today. I wouldn’t […]

Fox Dog strikes again!

Fox Dog strikes again!

Marty’s photo of the day #2736: “Okay, Dad! I have carefully applied this great-smelling black stuff, and I’m ready to get back into the truck now.” (Photographed in Alberta, Canada)

Look closely . . .

Look closely . . .

Marty’s photo of the day #2683: I took this photo in Canada’s Northwest Territories. If you look carefully, you can see hundreds of Porcupine caribou, in the midst of their 800 mile-long migration—the longest of any land animal. Later, Deb and I would meet up with the caribou and hike with them for a short […]

Porcupine gives “that look”

Porcupine gives “that look”

Marty’s photo of the day #2604: I photographed this porcupine in Canada several years ago. When I look at this photo now, I can’t help but laugh, knowing that just about everyone in Canada is giving people from America the same look. (Don’t worry Canada. We’ll be back to normal before long.)

From North America’s beacon of freedom on Independence Day

Marty’s photo of the day #2588: With today being Independence Day, Americans turn to thoughts of freedom: freedom of the press, freedom to not be shot, freedom from being embarrassed by the head of your country, freedom from misspelled presidential tweets, freedom to believe in science, freedom from Putin, freedom from the cone of silence, […]

Time Is Irreverent: Canadian Best Seller

Time Is Irreverent: Canadian Best Seller

If you follow my posts, you know: “Time Is Irreverent” wasn’t supposed to be published until March 1st, but a miscommunication with Amazon resulted in an accidental publication date of February 7. I wasn’t prepared and was in a near-panic because none of my promotions were in order. I quickly did what I could on […]

Crossing the Athabasca River

Crossing the Athabasca River

Marty’s photo of the day #2448: When I photographed this amazing elk, crossing the Athabasca River in Alberta, Canada, my camera lens was on its deathbed. Consequently most of the photos didn’t turn out, and since I was using a film camera at the time, I didn’t know until it was too late. This is […]

Will they be migrating to oil wells?

Will they be migrating to oil wells?

Marty’s photo of the day #2401: I took this photo in the Yukon Territory. This is a small section of the Porcupine caribou migration. Traveling more than 700 miles between Canada and the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, in Alaska, it is the longest terrestrial migration on Earth. Of course now that the sinister Republican tax […]

Being artsy

Being artsy

Marty’s photo of the day #2233: I don’t remember much about this photo, except that I took it in Canada, north of the Arctic Circle, and I was trying to be artsy.
