December 2012 Desktop Calendar

A gaggle of geese. A pandemonium of parrots. How about a mash of mosses to fill your screen this December?

After making these desktop calendars for the last year I think that it has been a fun experiment, but I am not sure if I will continue them for 2013. So, if anyone out there has actually been downloading them and would like me to continue, please drop me a message in the comments section. Otherwise I may try my hand at a different project next year. 

1 - Single click on the image to open it up in a new window. (If you use the image directly from the blog post you will lose a lot of resolution.)

2 - Right-click (or ctrl-click) on the image, and chose the option that says, "Set as Desktop Background" or "Use as Desktop Picture". The wording may vary.

3 - If the image does not fit your desktop neatly, you may have to adjust the image (Mac: System Preferences - Desktop and Screen Saver - Desktop; Windows: Control Panel - Display - Desktop) and choose "Fill screen" as the display mode of your background image.


  1. I love your moss calendar pictures but if it's too much for you to keep it up just for my guilty pleasure I guess I can make my own. Thank you though!!

  2. I agree with Mandy. Though I've not found an easy way to put a calendar on my macro photos. How do you do it?

    1. Jim,
      I use this digital template ( and Adobe Photoshop to put the calendar onto my photos.

      Cheers - Jessica
