The clouds were coming in from the east as we got to First Encounter Beach. It was low tide so there were lots of sandbars where the birds would rest.
I thought this was such a pretty photograph, what do you think?
Merry We were taking a hike at Fort Hill last fall when we passed a group of middle school student on a field trip. Their guide was telling them about the salt marsh and that there are 3 plants that make up a salt marsh.
I thought to myself, “I never knew that. I’ll have to look that up when I get home.” I did some research and I think they are herbs, grasses and low shrubs. Does anyone know if this is correct? There are many, many different varieties of each of these plants.
This is a photograph of Glasswort or Pickleweed. You can see it along the side of the trail on the salt marsh at Fort Hill.
I saw this Double-crested Cormorant swimming around on Boat Meadow Creek in Eastham a couple of weeks ago. I was surprised that they were still here. It is a diving bird so it was fun to watch it dive under water looking for food.
I loved its reflection and the reflection of the marsh grass in the water. What do you think?
There were some really cool-looking trees on Beech Forest Trail in Provincetown. They reminded me of Colorado where you frequently see trees on the slopes of the the mountains which have curved trunks due to the snow and ice pushing it. They called them “snow knees.” Cute, don’t you think?
I wonder what caused these tree trunks to bend so much…
I took this tree with different filters. What do you think?
This cute little White-breasted Nuthatch was walking around on our deck the other day. I wondered if he had hit a window and gotten stunned and was just taking it easy for a bit. He seemed pretty good, just weird to see him on our deck.
Cute little guy, don’t you think?
