Least Terns Are Back At Coast Guard Beach On Cape Cod.


Coast Guard Beach has not been too quiet lately with all of the Least Terns returning to nest. They are quite a noisy bird calling back and forth to each other.

This guy was just yacking away… Beautiful bird, don’t you think?


Beautiful Little Copper Butterfly On Cape Cod.


The butterflies are really starting to come back to Cape Cod. I saw this Little Copper butterfly on one of the flowering bushes on the Nauset Marsh Trail and then later on the same day, I saw it in our yard. (Click on blog link to see other photo.)

The Little Copper butterfly is  a tiny butterfly with a wingspan of 7/8″ to 1 and 1/8.” It looks so different when its wings are extended or folded up as you can see in the 2 photographs.

Have you seen a Little Copper butterfly this year?

Great Paddle-Surfing On Cape Cod!


The waves have been perfect for some great surfing and paddle-surfing on Cape Cod. It’s been fun just going down to the beach and watching them all try to catch that “perfect wave!”

There were 19 surfers out there the other day… so much fun to watch them try to get a good ride in.

Wild Bluebell Wildflowers Growing In The Woods On Cape Cod.


There is a little grove of Bluebells and some other little wildflowers growing in the woods near my home. I saw them last year about this same time, but this year they seem to have spread more.  They are just beautiful and such a pretty splash of color with pinks and blues and whites!

So pretty, don’t you think?
