Marty’s photo of the day #3461: I took this photo outside an old church in Plasencia, Spain. Hmmm. . . . It’s almost as if an ancient Spanish architect had a vision of Donald Trump, tweeting on the toilet, on the day his loss by Electoral College landslide was confirmed.

Marty’s photo of the day #3459: I took this photo from the co-pilot’s seat. Here’s what it looks like when you are heading north, toward the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska. This is one of the most dangerous flights in the world, because the tiny airplane has to fight a headwind coming off the […]
Marty’s photo of the day #3458: “Trump did what? And his cult bought it? Oh, man, that’s a whole other level of stupid. Even baboons wouldn’t fall for that.” (Orangutan, photographed on the island of Borneo)
Marty’s photo of the day #3457: I will have a short segment on Deb’s and my Sea of Cortez octopus adventure in my upcoming book, Hits, Heathens, and Hippos: Stories from an Agent, Activist, and Adventurer. The book won’t have any photos, but if it did, this one of an octopus looking at us from […]
In Time Is Irreverent, my Trump-like character, President Handley, manipulates the system to turn America into a theocracy and become Supreme Leader for Life. In real life, the attorney general of Texas (joined by 17 red states) has filed a Supreme Court lawsuit to overturn Biden’s victories in Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. The chances […]
Marty’s photo of the day #3456: Never has the time between the Presidential Election in Inauguration Day moved so slowly. We still have 41 more days of the most incompetent, selfish, evil president in American history. All this waiting is making me crabby. (Photographed in Costa Rica)
Marty’s photo of the day #3455: A scene from one of the pools in Mana Pools National Park (Zimbabwe). Do you see the crocodile, patiently waiting for its prey to make a mistake? Me neither—but he/she is there.
Here’s and interesting little fact: Did you know that your nostrils switch off primary duties several times each hour? Try it. Breathe out through your nostrils now and note which one pushes the most air. Then wait for a bit and try it again. If you timed it correctly, the other nostril will now be […]
Marty’s photo of the day #3453: This is a stark picture—as it should be. I took this photo inside the partially flooded caldera of a volcano. Also known as Deception Island, for years the caldera provided shelter for whalers. Fortunately, Mother Nature took care of those fuckers with multiple volcanic eruptions. Whale bones, like this […]
Marty’s photo of the day #3453: For those already looking forward to summer—here’s some bear grass, in the mountains of western Montana.
Marty’s photo of the day #3452: Here’s a monkey lizard. Photographed in the Amazon Rainforest of Peru.
Marty’s photo of the day #3451: This little cutie is a baby black caiman. If all goes well, this caiman will reach sixteen feet in length. Photographed in the Amazon Rainforest of Peru.
Marty’s photo of the day #3450: You are looking at the Pyrenees Mountains in Southern France. I believe the road heading down the mountain was at one time a route for the Tour de France, because I spotted big display with a statue of a bicyclist along the way.
Marty’s photo of the day #3449: Montana may be a red state, with a backward population that elected a body-slammer for governor, voted for a crybaby narcissist for president, and aggravated the COVID-19 pandemic by believing in conspiracy theories, but when it comes to pure natural beauty the state is hard to beat. I took […]
Marty’s photo of the day #3448: This is a yellow-headed blackbird, photographed in the Bitterroot Valley of Montana.
