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 […]

Bicycling with bears

Bicycling with bears

Marty’s photo of the day #2310: Here’s another bear shot from the motion-sensing camera in my front yard. This one is from Saturday when, coincidentally, a bear briefly ran alongside me, shortly after I departed on my morning bicycle ride. I ride a little later on weekends than on weekdays, so there was just enough […]

Fawning over fawns, part 2

Fawning over fawns, part 2

Marty’s photo of the day #1873: Two days ago, I checked the motion-sensing camera in our backyard. I have definitely found the best spot to photograph fawns and turkeys, but I would rather get the elk, moose, coyotes, bear, fox, mountain lion, and pine martins that roam our property. This time I captured two really […]

Fawning over fawns

Marty’s photo of the day #1872: Yesterday, I checked the motion-sensing camera in our backyard. I have definitely found the best spot to photograph fawns and turkeys, but I would rather get the elk, moose, coyotes, bear, fox, mountain lion, and pine martins that roam our property. This time I captured two exceptional fawn photos […]

Fawns on the run

Fawns on the run

Marty’s photo of the day #1860: Aaack! My morning is going too fast, and I have so much to do today. I don’t have time to put much thought into today’s photo, but luckily my motion-sensing camera works 24-hours-a-day, and we have fawns running around on our property. And who doesn’t like baby deer?

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 […]

Secretive Elk

Secretive Elk

Marty’s photo of the day #1791: It’s just amazing how secretive the animals living around our house can be. I have a motion-sensing camera in the woods below my home-office window. I look out that window all the time, yet I never see these two elk that show up on that camera week after week. […]

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.

Mother and Baby Elk

Mother and Baby Elk

Marty’s photo of the day #1491: Yesterday I posted a photo of a mother moose and her baby in my front yard. Today we stay with the mother and baby theme, but switch to my back yard. We have a tall window-wall that faces the woods behind our house. And since the woods drop into […]
