Ready for winter

Ready for winter

Marty’s photo of the day #2715: Here’s another elk photo from the motion-sensing camera in my “front yard.” All ready for winter. She looks so fuzzy and warm!

Five elk

Five elk

Marty’s photo of the day #2713: Can you spot all five elk? Actually, there are six, but one is directly behind the elk on the far right. For the last two weeks, anywhere from 35 to 70 elk have been hanging out on the 25 acres we own, surrounding our house. Unfortunately because of all […]

They’re onto us!

They’re onto us!

Marty’s photo of the day #2522: The action has been slow lately on the motion-sensing camera in our front yard. I think the animals are on to us.

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.

Marty’s photo of the day #1493-A: Today I am going to post two more photos from the motion-sensing camera in my back yard. Here’s a fawn to start your Monday with a smile!

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 […]
