Marty’s photo of the day #4061: The best part of three-day backpacking trips to U.S. Forest Service cabins is the middle day. It’s work to backpack in and work to backpack out, but that middle day is always heaven. Generally Deb (wife), Nellie (dog), and I go on a few short hikes on that middle […]

Marty’s photo of the day #3788: This is one of the Amazing Acrobat Coyotes of Antelope Island, performing the difficult but crowd-pleasing “one paw stand with bison hide blindfold.” (Photographed on Antelope Island in Utah)
Marty’s photos of the day #3744-3747: My favorite of the three places Deb, Nellie, and I stayed at in the American Prairie Reserve was a yurt on the western side. The yurt didn’t have running water, but it still felt luxurious compared to our previous two stays. Our yurt had three sections: one section had […]
Marty’s photo of the day #3383: This coyote didn’t pay any federal income taxes for ten years—just like Donald Trump. While both creatures are opportunists, with limited vocabularies, one thing is for sure: the coyote would have been a much better president.
Marty’s photo of the day #2884: While in Yellowstone National Park this past weekend, I saw a wolf at the top of a mountain, looking down on two grizzly bears with a kill. The wolf was gone before I could focus my camera, and the grizzlies were beyond the effective range on my telephoto lens. […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2803: This is kind of a strange photo until you know what you’re looking at. It’s a coyote with her kill, crossing a road on Antelope Island, in Utah.
Marty’s photo of the day #2415: I’ve never understood why so many people hate coyotes. They’re beautiful, valuable animals. It’s the people who poison and trap these creatures that do the real damage.
Marty’s photo of the day #2186: Back on March 11 and March 12, I posted two photos from my motion-sensing camera: one of a coyote, and one of a fox. Both were checking out a dead deer that was two hundred feet below my house. I thought for sure that I would soon get photos […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2123: As mentioned yesterday, Deb and I were out hiking in our backyard (we have a very big backyard), when I found a dead deer. The deer was frozen solid, so I moved it to an open spot in the forest and set up my motion-sensing camera. Initially the action […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2122: I think I’m going to have some impressive, albeit gross, photos to show you over the next few weeks. About a month ago, Deb and I were out hiking in our backyard (we have a very big backyard), when I found a dead deer that I’m pretty sure a […]
