Moose hide-and-seek

Moose hide-and-seek

Marty’s photo of the day #3355: Ah! Nothing says “Montana” quite like a vigorous game of moose-hide-and-seek in the front yard.

A good winter for the animals

A good winter for the animals

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 […]

Moose-Central

Moose-Central

Marty’s photo of the day #3183: I’ve mentioned before that the 25 acres Deb and I own that surrounds our house is Moose-Central. Moose come here year around, and I’m often amazed at how effectively such a big animal can hide in the woods. In fact, we were hiking our property last week when I […]

Hanging out with the moose

Hanging out with the moose

Marty’s photo of the day #3116: I had to dig deep for this photo, taken when I was still using a film camera. This moose spent a year or more hanging around our house. That’s one of my favorite things about living in Montana. Deb and I built our house here in 1996, and we […]

There’s always the moose

There’s always the moose

Marty’s photo of the day #3017: If I haven’t been out photographing wildlife, I’m never sure what photo on my hard drive will catch my attention for my morning post. One thing is for sure. I have a ton of moose photos to choose from—all taken on the Essen Wildlife Refuge that surrounds our house. […]

Marty’s photo of the day #2965: Many of my photo of the day posts are as big of a surprise to me as they are to you. On my hard drive, I have many thousands of photos I’ve taken over the years. Generally I post fairly recent pictures, but some days, like today, I have […]

Montana moose

Montana moose

Marty’s photo of the day #2851: “I’ll just stand here behind this tree, and we’ll pretend you can’t see me.” (Moose, photographed in my “front yard” several years ago.)

The value of animals . . .

The value of animals . . .

Marty’s photo of the day #2711: At my college shows, I talk about the value of all animals—not only because of their value to nature, but also because of their value to humans. This moose is a great example. Obviously moose are important to the ecosystems they live in, and, also, they provide great value […]

The mooses of summer

The mooses of summer

Marty’s photo of the day #2561: Yay! The first moose of the year is here. When I first saw the land we bought surrounding where we would eventually build our house, I didn’t think “moose territory,” because even though it has surface water, it’s not swampy. Nevertheless, just about every year, since 1996, we’ve had […]

Follow the eye

Follow the eye

Marty’s photo of the day #2512: I love the feeling this photo projects. Mr. Moose can’t pass up stripping the branch of its tasty new growth, yet he can’t take his eye off of me either. And you can tell by the aim of his eye just how much he towers over me. (Photographed in […]

Quieter than a wolf on a hunt

Quieter than a wolf on a hunt

Marty’s photo of the day #2489: “Shhhhh! I’m in my front yard, sneaking up on a moose. . . . . I’m quieter than a wolf on a hunt. She doesn’t have a clue that I’m here. Um . . . I take that back!”

Hanging out with moose

Hanging out with moose

Marty’s photo of the day #2469: This photo is from a few years ago. Every year, moose hang out on the property we own around our house. I’m looking forward to seeing them again this spring.

It’s okay to talk politics on Thanksgiving Day

It’s okay to talk politics on Thanksgiving Day

Marty’s photo of the day #2375: I had this great caption in mind for a turkey photo I had taken several years ago. Of course, with all the photos on my hard drive, finding a specific photo isn’t always easy. Then I came across this moose photo I took several years ago. I’m thankful for […]

If this is a repeat, it’s not my fault

If this is a repeat, it’s not my fault

Marty’s photo of the day #2189: I try to never repeat my photos of the day, but I’m sure I screw up every once in a while. I photographed this moose in our front yard several years ago. If it’s a repeat, I’m sorry. It’s not my fault. It’s the liberal media’s fault—because Donald Trump […]
