Marty’s photo of the day #2730: This large frog, that I photographed in Peru, has many different names: gladiator tree frog, giant tree frog, giant gladiator tree frog, Hypsiboas boans, and Joe.

Marty’s photo of the day #2728: This photo is for those who have had their hearts ripped out, witnessing children of asylum-seekers, crying in pain, due to Donald Trump’s tear gas. Here are some children from south of the border, just being kids, and having a great time. (Photographed in Iquitos, Peru)
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 #2727: This school of fish has taken to the air in an attempt to escape a pod of spotted dolphins. (Photographed along the coast of Costa Rica.)
Hey conservatives! Republican Jesus here. With Christmas on the way, and the possibility that you might meet a heathen, a gay, a lesbian, or an environmentalist, I want to remind you to stick to your G.O.D.S. (Yes, plural, just like it is in Genesis until we changed our minds and settled on the one god […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2726: Here’s a photo from my second book, Endangered Edens: Exploring the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Costa Rica, the Everglades, and Puerto Rico: Terns in the Sea of Cortez (Mexico).
Marty’s photo of the day #2725: I generally don’t post the same species two days in a row, but this orangutan gave me a thumbs up to do so today. (Photographed in Borneo)
Marty’s photo of the day #2723: Here’s a pronghorn that I photographed in really nice light in Wyoming. Pronghorns can run 53 MPH, making them the second fastest land animal in the world (cheetahs are the fastest).
Marty’s photo of the day #2722: This is me, practicing my snake calling skills, with a seven-and-a-half foot-long African rock python. (Photographed in Zimbabwe)
Marty’s photo of the day #2720: What’s better than one humpback whale coming over to play? Two humpback whales coming over to play! (Photographed along the coast of Antarctica)
Marty’s photo of the day #2719: Even big kitties enjoy sprawling in a patch of sunshine. I wish I could say that I hung out for days in a tree, just waiting for this jaguar to fall asleep under me. But alas this is technically a cheat shot. Although the jaguar is very much […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2718: Here’s a photo from Borneo. It’s either the foot of a comb-crested agamid lizard or aliens have arrived. I’m not sure which.
Marty’s photo of the day #2717: Here’s a scenic shot from the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. In this photo, I’m facing south, toward the Brooks Range, and the Arctic Ocean is to my back, about thirty miles away. This is way too far north for trees—so there’s nowhere to hide if you have to go […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2716: Previously, I’ve posted howler monkeys that I photographed in Costa Rica. Here’s a howler monkey that I photographed in Belize.
Marty’s photo of the day #2715: Here’s another elk photo from the motion-sensing camera in my “front yard.” All ready for winter. She looks so fuzzy and warm!
Most book authors either write nonfiction or fiction. I started out with nonfiction, publishing Cool Creatures, Hot Planet: Exploring the Seven Continents in 2006 and following up with Endangered Edens: Exploring the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Costa Rica, the Everglades, and Puerto Rico in 2016. After that I switched to fiction, publishing Time Is Irreverent in 2018 […]
