Marty’s photo of the day #3639: Don’t you just love the long rear claws of this Jesus Christ lizard? These lizards are named as such, because when they are young, they have the ability to run across small bodies of water—using only their hind legs. This large Jesus Christ lizard would sink. (Photographed in Costa […]

Marty’s photo of the day #3549: This won’t go down as my most crisp photo, but macaws are skittish. I had been trying to photograph them for the entire week I was in Costa Rica, and I finally got close enough for a few shots on the morning of my departure.
Marty’s photo of the day #3547: Brown pelicans along the coast of Costa Rica.
Marty’s photo of the day #3544: I came across this spot while kayaking along the coast of Costa Rica. I dubbed it “James Bond Point.” Can’t you see James Bond (preferably played by anyone other than Daniel Craig) in a speedboat chase scene, racing through this spot? At the last moment Bond would lunge up […]

Marty’s photo of the day #3515: Whenever I’m in a region of the world with a rainforest, my favorite thing to do is wait until dark and then head out with a flashlight. Often the creatures of the night look like they are from another planet. Here’s a katydid from one of my night hikes […]
Marty’s photo of the day #3493: I haven’t posted any photos from Costa Rica for a while, so here’s a young howler monkey. Speaking of howlers . . . . Just one more day of the biggest crybaby howler of them all, Donald Trump!

Marty’s photo of the day #3439: The attack of the killer brown pelicans! I’m kind of pissed that I cut off the top of this pelican’s head, but humorous photos don’t need to be perfect. Photographed in Costa Rica.
