Awesome View Of Painted Lady Butterfly On Cape Cod

I got so many cool photographs of this Painted Lady butterfly at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary last weekend. He just flitted from flower to flower while I clicked away. I got so many different angles.

This is my first one. What do you think?

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a butterfly this close up. Have you?



Bullfrog At The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary On Cape Cod

I kept hearing this Bullfrog in the water by Silver Spring Trail, but I couldn’t see where it was until I used my binoculars and saw him amongst the Lily Pads. With his camouflage coloring, he was quite hidden in there.

This Bullfrog is about 4 and 3/4 ” and the female lays up to 20,000 eggs. Yikes! That is a lot of eggs!! It takes 1-3 years for the tadpoles to develop into adults. Interesting…
