Gorgeous, Foggy Sunrise Over Nauset Marsh On Cape Cod.

We were in our way home from the gym and it was really foggy outside. Just as we drove by the Salt Pond we could see the sun trying to peek through the fog.

Thinking we might get a nice photo over Nauset Marsh, we stopped the car at Hemenway Landing. We sure were not disappointed. Gorgeous, don’t you think? Looks like bolt of lightning piercing the sun…

 

Healthy Coyote Searching For Prey At Fort Hill On Cape Cod.

I’ve seen many coyotes hunting for prey at Fort Hill but they were always pretty far away out in the fields. This coyote was so intent on finding lunch that he wasn’t paying attention to anyone walking by.

Beautiful animal, don’t you think?

The Pretty, White Snowdrop Wildflowers Are Blooming On Cape Cod.

We had to wait for the snow to melt this year before we could see the delicate, white Snowdrop wildflowers blooming on the hillside under the trees. (Click on blog link for other photo.)

Fun facts:
1. “Snowdrops were named after earrings not drops of snow.
2. There are more than 2,500 varieties of snowdrop wildflowers.
3. They are symbolic of spring, purity and religion.
4. Snowdrops are one of the first flowers to appear in the new year. In the northern hemisphere snowdrops can be seen appearing as early as January, weather permitting. They usually flower between the months of January and April.”
