Marty’s photo of the day #2728: I only saw one of these while hiking in the rainforest of Costa Rica, and I’ve had a hell of a time identifying it. I did a little more research this morning and am reasonably sure it’s a Costa Rican bamboo palm. The bees sure loved it.

Marty’s photo of the day #2692: This is one of the many toucan photos I shot while hiking in the Costa Rican rainforest. Photographing birds in the rainforest is difficult, because they are often skittish, and branches, like the one at the bottom of this photo, just love to jump in the way at the […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2685: I try to avoid posting the same photo twice, but sometimes I forget. This morning I was going through my Borneo photos and came across this frog. I did a little sharpening and a little cropping but couldn’t remember the species name. I have several identification books, but since […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2326: This photo from Puerto Rico demonstrates the effect of the island’s interior mountains. Most of Puerto Rico has a tropical climate, with rainforests, but the Guánica State Forest, on the southwestern side of the island, is dry, as the mountains block much of the rain. Here the cacti grow […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2305: I photographed these orphaned baby orangutans while night-hiking through an orangutan rehabilitation facility in Borneo. These babies were supposed to be secured in pens at night, but they had escaped. And obviously the idea of escaping was much more exciting than the reality of heading for the rainforest, alone, […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2109: Here’s a photo of Victoria Falls from my adventure in Zimbabwe. I got very wet taking this photo, as whenever even the slightest wind blew, I’d be in my own private rainstorm. Victoria Falls is an arid region, but all around it is a tiny rainforest, with rainforest plants.
Marty’s photo of the day #2031: “Out for a Sunday float through the Amazon Rainforest with dad.” I love this shot because one can imagine a hundred different stories or captions to accompany it. But here’s something tough to imagine: I took this photo in the midst of the rainy season, and the water in […]
Marty’s photo of the day #1867: Donald Trump’s wife may look good in makeup and a swimsuit, but mine can look stylish, makeup free, in the extreme heat and humidity of the Amazon Rainforest. In this photo, Deb clowns around, pretending to be on the runway, modeling “rainforest chic.” The rubber boots, by the way, […]
Marty’s photo of the day #1721: This week’s theme is Amazon Rainforest Frogs. Coming up with a different nature picture every day is difficult, but I found some cool, un-posted, frog shots while perusing the photo files from my last Amazon trip. Some species I have identified; most I have not. I believe this frog […]
Marty’s photo of the day #1719: This week’s theme is Amazon Rainforest Frogs (then we’ll get back to warm and cuddly animals from other parts of the world, I promise). Coming up with a different nature picture every day is difficult, but I found some cool, un-posted, frog shots while perusing the photo files from […]
