Better than I originally thought

Better than I originally thought

Marty’s photo of the day #2377: Sometimes coming up with an interesting photo each day can be challenging—especially since I usually don’t select the photo until minutes before posting. On the other hand, sometimes I discover photos that I don’t remember taking or that strike me as better shots than I had originally thought. Today’s […]

A bison as Foghorn Leghorn

Marty’s photo of the day #2342: Ever since I took this photo, I have imagined this bison with the voice of Foghorn Leghorn. Can’t you just hear it? “I say, boy, pay attention when I’m talkin’ to ya, boy!”

Marty’s photo of the day #2096: I just got home after a weeklong college speaking tour. Now I have to deal with the pile waiting for me on my desk. This bison has been sitting in my “ready to post” folder for months, but I have been passing him up in favor of shots I […]

Spring means baby bison!

Spring means baby bison!

Marty’s photo of the day #1661: When you live in an area with four distinct seasons, like Montana, there are reasons to love every season. Still, sometimes, we have to complain about the current season and yearn for the next. For those already looking forward to the end of winter, I present a photo that […]

Baby Bision, Part Two

Baby Bision, Part Two

Marty’s photo of the day #1568: People seemed to enjoy yesterday’s photo of two baby bison “running around mom, like puppies,” so here’s another shot of the same two babies, a few minutes later. The babies didn’t think swimming across the river with mom was nearly as much fun.

Playful baby bison
