It’s a rock! It’s a bird! It’s a . . .

Marty’s photo of the day #2506: Early each morning I go on a bike ride. Since it’s still dark, I’m always scanning for mountain lions, bears, and sasquatches in my path. Two days ago, I was heading down the narrow dirt road from my house and my bike light caught what appeared to be a […]

This time I captured two really […]

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 […]
