Nature photography, political rants, and Martyman laughs from the ten-time award-winning author Marty Essen

Front yard elk

Marty’s photo of the day #2699: Deb and I own 25 wooded acres, surrounding our house. Although we see animals every single day, we also miss a lot of them. Lately we’ve been seeing tons of fresh elk poo, but no elk. That changed this morning, when Deb spotted a herd of six or more elk sleeping among the trees on the far side of our “front yard.” I stalked as close as I could, but had to photograph this beautiful bull from roughly fifty yards away.
