Island Of Seals Off Of Coast Guard Beach In Eastham On Cape Cod

9 views

We took a walk on Coast Guard Beach in Eastham down to Nauset Spit and saw what was a huge “island of seals” not far off of the beach. There were hundreds of them. We had seen a few seals here and there along the coast but never this many. No wonder the Great White Sharks like to come nearby waters to feast.

There must be  a sandbar where they all congregate. It was low tide when we took our walk…I wonder if they are still there at high tide?

We were taking a hike along the Silver Spring Trail at the Mass Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary the other day when I saw some movement among the Pond Lilies. A turtle could not cause that much movement. What could it be?

We watched this little Muskrat swim across the little inlet and then come up on shore about 3 feet from us. It was very dark in the shade and there were a lot of branches and leaves, but we got a couple of photographs of him.

He’s about the size of a rat. Look at those feet and that long tail. Have you ever seen a Muskrat?

I have never seen a Black Swallowtail before it landed on one of my Zinnias in my backyard yesterday. I happened to see it out of the corner of my eye so I ran and got my camera and clicked away. He was just beautiful.

The Black Swallowtail is a large butterfly with its wingspan up to 3.5″. It is mostly black with iridescent blue on its hindwings and  rows of yellow with an orange eyespot. You can in the 2 photographs how different it looks with its wings open and closed.

So pretty, don’t you think?
