Blurry photo captures tribble

Blurry photo captures tribble

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 […]

Our 25-acre refuge from gunfire

Our 25-acre refuge from gunfire

Marty’s photo of the day #2311: Deb and I keep the 25 acres we own around our house as natural as possible. Our goal is to give the animals a safe spot they can come to—especially during the fall hunting season, when we are surrounded by gunfire. Each year the wildlife we see changes. One […]

Crossing the same path three times

Crossing the same path three times

Marty’s photo of the day #2290: Here’s another photo from the motion-sensing camera in my front yard. I almost didn’t post this one, as it was dusk when the bear walked by, and I had to digitally increase the light to make the photo presentable. This shot may be lacking some in detail, but it’s […]

The bone thief

The bone thief

Marty’s photo of the day #2201: As posted previously, I have my motion-sensing camera set over a dead deer on our property, 200 feet below our house. The deer is now in its final phase of going back to nature. The vultures have finished with it, and all that is left is for our dog, […]

Don’t shoot this one!

Don’t shoot this one!

Marty’s photo of the day #2001: Today I have two photos from my backyard motion-sensing camera. Both are of a beautiful white-tailed buck living on our property. The first shot is humorous, and the second shows the entire deer. Hunting season in Montana runs from September 15 to November 27, and so far this big […]

A good year for deer!

A good year for deer!

Marty’s photo of the day #1859: This past winter was a good one for our local deer. I have had a motion-sensing camera for years, and I’m glad I no longer use the film one (which died from a bear bite many years ago), as I’d be going through roll after roll of nothing but […]

The Pepé Le Pew of deer

The Pepé Le Pew of deer

Marty’s photo of the day #1856: When Deb and I moved to Montana, twenty years ago, we had a large herd of mule deer living by our house. Several years later, the “mulies” disappeared and haven’t returned. If you are unfamiliar with mule deer, their most distinctive feature is that they hop, like the cartoon […]

Fawns Abound!

Fawns Abound!

Marty’s photo of the day #1834: Deer babies abound! This time of year is always fun around our house, as the fawns are busy following their moms everywhere. This photo is from the motion-sensing camera in our “backyard.”

The Christmas Card Deer

The Christmas Card Deer

Marty’s photo of the day #1602: This photo is from the motion-sensing camera in my front yard. When I downloaded it onto my laptop, it looked horrible. But since I really liked the dash of snow and the light coming through the trees, I played with it a bit in my photo program. It’s still […]

Marty’s photo of the day #1493-B: Today I am going to post two more photos from the motion-sensing camera in my back yard. Here is the second one.
