Marty’s photo of the day #4231: All ready for her nap! This is me holding Bonnie, a silver wallaroo. Bonnie’s mother was hit by a car. The mother died, but Bonnie survived in the pouch. When not in someone’s arms, Bonnie hopped around and hung out in an artificial pouch. Later, once she was old […]

Marty’s photo of the day #4016: This is an amethystine python that I photographed on a night hike through the rainforest of northern Queensland, Australia. He was about 7 feet-long, but somewhere in this forest was Mom, at 23 feet-long. If only I could find her.

Marty’s photo of the day #3563: This is a white-lipped tree frog, photographed in Queensland, Australia. Photographic note: I took this photo with my first digital camera—a Sony Mavica that recorded directly onto a mini cd.

Marty’s photo of the day #3528: The following excerpt from my newly published sixth book, Hits, Heathens, and Hippos: Stories from an Agent, Activist, and Adventurer, takes place in Australia: I had decided to hike up every river within a ten-mile stretch of Queensland coast. Since all the rivers dropped down from the mountains, I […]

Marty’s photo of the day #3476: People seemed to like yesterday’s artsy black and white photo looking straight down on a well-camouflaged alligator, so I’ve decided to stick with that theme. Today’s artsy black and white photo looks straight down on a surfacing platypus, in Queensland, Australia.
