Marty’s photo of the day #4321: Don’t look Florida! This is “Hercules and the Centaur Nessus,” a marble statue by the Flemish-Italian artist Giambologna. He created it between 1595 and 1599 out of a single block of marble. Can you imagine how long it took to carve Hercules’s penis? Tap just a little too hard […]

Marty’s photo of the day #4320: When in Europe, Deb and I make it a point to visit churches. We don’t do it for religious reasons, but instead because they double as art museums. In 2018, while in Florence, Italy, we visited a Catholic church that featured multiple nude statues that were just fine for […]
Marty’s photo of the day #4315: Every time I get embarrassed about living in the backward state of Montana, some other primitive state, such as Idaho, Wyoming, Utah, Mississippi, or Florida reminds me, “Hey, it could be worse.” I’m sure many of you saw the story about the Florida principal who got fired for allowing […]
Marty’s photo of the day #4314: Deb, Nellie, and I spent a week at Montana’s American Prairie each of the last two years. This year we will be skipping that trip to take on some other outdoor adventures. Today’s photo is from our first visit to the American Prairie. Pronghorns are the fastest land animal […]
Marty’s photo of the day #4311: The world is a scary place, when you’re a tiny tree frog. (Photographed in the Amazon Rainforest of Peru)
Marty’s photo of the day #4310: A pretty little road that dead-ends at a river in the Yukon Territory of Canada.
Marty’s photo of the day #4308: That time when you’re in the African bush after sunset and you feel something big is looking at you. I photographed this leopard in Zimbabwe. It was quite dark out, and I really had to push my camera to create this image.
Marty’s photo of the day #4307: I’m having a very busy day today. And many of you know what that means: a penguin photo! I opened up my Antarctica photo file and this was quite literally the first penguin photo I saw that I haven’t posted before. These are gentoo penguins.
Marty’s photo of the day #4306: Now that I have my brand new Ford Maverick truck, Deb, Nellie, and I are planning to head into far north Canada this fall. I took this photo the last time Deb and I made the trip. This is the 362-mile-long Campbell Highway, a gravel road that crosses the […]
Marty’s photo of the day #4305: Having posted over four thousand “photos of the day,” with the goal of never posting the same photo twice, sometimes I have to really think to remember if I’ve posted a particular photo. Icebergs are especially difficult. I know I’ve shown this iceberg before, but I don’t think I’ve […]
Marty’s photo of the day #4304: That awkward moment when the child is bigger than the parent and still wants to be fed. Gentoo penguins, photographed off the coast of Antarctica.
Marty’s photo of the day #4302: Since people seemed to like yesterday’s butterfly from Belize, here’s another one from the same location. This butterfly is called an owl butterfly, because when it opens its wings, the big spot on each wing creates the illusion of owl eyes.
