Marty’s photos of the day #3673: On February 12, 2020, I got my hair cut in preparation for a college show in New Jersey. At the time, I had no idea how hard the COVID-19/Trump pandemic would hit, and that following that show, I would be switching to performing at colleges via Zoom. After that […]
Marty’s photo of the day #3630: Every morning before work, I take my dog, Nellie, to a clearing in the woods by my house, and we attempt to play Frisbee. Yesterday, we had a very curious (and I think very pregnant) doe hanging around. First, I had to talk the deer out of Deb’s garden, […]
Marty’s photo of the day #3604: It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything from my front yard motion-sensing camera. Pictures over the winter have been pretty run-of-the-mill—just the usual bigfoot, D.B. Cooper, and naked Mitch McConnell shots. Finally, though, I got the deer portrait I had been aiming for!
Marty’s photo of the day #3519: Deb’s and my house looks down a tree-filled hill with multiple benches. Every winter, when the snow gets deep, one or more deer take to sleeping on the closest bench to our house. Yesterday was the first day that happened since our dog, Nellie, joined our family. Consequently, Nellie […]
Marty’s photo of the day #3322: I took this photo yesterday, in front of my house. Many people aren’t aware of it, but on Sundays momma deer gets the day off and daddy buck has to fawn over the kid.
Marty’s photo of the day #3302: The warm weather means moving my office outdoors to the front porch. While there, working on my next book, I keep a camera beside me to capture images of visitors, like this one from yesterday. I find it interesting that deer are sensitive to noises, such as speaking or […]
Marty’s photo of the day #3224: Where I live in Montana, the animals enjoyed a good winter. Deb and I have been regularly seeing a moose on our evening walks, along with lots of deer. Also, every morning on my bike ride I see between twenty and thirty deer, and this morning I saw another […]
Marty’s photo of the day #3056: I took this photo in my front yard a few seasons ago. I wonder if these fawns are now the adults that have figured out that our old dog, Lucy, is now incapable of keeping them out of our gardens. Some days I go outside, and am shocked at […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2893: Early each morning I go on a bike ride (I live on a steep mountain hill, so it’s my daily workout), and each morning brings me a new sight. It could be a bear, a moose, a deer, an elk, or even a groundhog. The last few mornings, I’ve […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2844: As many of you know, earlier this winter roughly three feet of snow buried my house. Now that the weather has warmed up, the snow has melted enough that I could finally trudge out into the woods in our side yard to check my motion-sensing camera. There wasn’t a […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2412: There are actually two deer in this photo, but the photo-bomber in the rear makes the subject appear to have two tails.
Marty’s photo of the day #2382: You are looking at either the smartest or the luckiest deer in Montana. My wife and I live on 25 acres of forested land at the foot of the mountains, and all around are neighbors on similar plots of land. To put it another way, the property we own […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2351: I moved my motion-sensing camera to a spot I’ve never tried before. The land surrounding our house has tons of animal trails through it, but I never know for sure what animals use a particular trail until I view the photos. This new spot is going to be a […]
