Marty’s photo of the day #3356: My sixth book, Hits, Heathens, and Hippos: Stories from an Agent, Activist, and Adventurer, is complete and will be published sometime next year. In that book, I share a hilarious story about Montana’s Democratic Governor Brian Schweitzer “coercing” me into paying way, way too much for a signed Hillary […]
Marty’s photo of the day #3355: Ah! Nothing says “Montana” quite like a vigorous game of moose-hide-and-seek in the front yard.
Marty’s photo of the day #3353: Here’s a calliope hummingbird, photographed in the Bitterroot Valley of Montana.
Marty’s photo of the day #3352: Today is National Dog Day, so of course I have to feature a photo of Nellie. We adopted Nellie from the local animal shelter, and she is approximately nine months old. During the three weeks we’ve had her, Deb and I are in agreement on two things: 1) No […]
Marty’s photo of the day #3351: This photo goes back to 2018 in Genova, Italy. Deb and I had gotten lost and arrived late to the apartment we rented. Restaurants within walking distance were full, so we stepped into a tiny market, bought a couple bottles of Italian wine, several varieties of cheese, crackers, smoked […]
Marty’s photo of the day #3349: Nellie, our nine-month-old rescue dog, has been with us for three weeks now. Since Deb and I were starting all over (after the last of our three elderly dogs died), we had some important decisions to make. Do we let Nellie onto the couch? Do we let Nellie climb […]
Marty’s photo of the day #3348: Here’s a short excerpt from my second book, Endangered Edens: Exploring the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Costa Rica, the Everglades, and Puerto Rico: When we planned our hike to the farmhouse, I immediately thought of the two-story farmhouse my grandparents had owned in northern Minnesota. I knew the Costa […]
Marty’s photo of the day #3347: Breakfast in Australia. Sometimes you just need to stop and feed the agile wallabies.
Marty’s photo of the day #3344: I photographed this tree frog at night, deep in the rainforest of Borneo. If this frog has a name other than “Bob” it is certainly a scientific name only. So many species on the island have yet to be cataloged or given common names. Well, “Bob” is a common […]
Marty’s photo of the day #3342: Marty: “I love Sunday mornings in Montana—sitting out on the front porch, reading the Sunday paper with a cup of coffee by my side.” Nellie: “Forget the Sunday paper! You’d much rather pet the cute puppy, wouldn’t you? See how cute I am. How can you resist?”
Marty’s photo of the day #3341: I took this howler monkey photo in Costa Rica. Look closely and you’ll see the baby.
Marty’s photo of the day #3339: For those desiring a visual break from the summer heat. I took this photo from the top of the Klein Matterhorn in Switzerland (12,740 feet), overlooking a glacier spanning between the peaks.
