I’ve only seen 2 types of butterflies since we arrived here on Cape Cod a month ago…. a white one and this pretty yellow Clouded Sulphur butterfly.
It was the same species that I saw a lot of in Colorado.
So pretty, don’t you think? Love his eye!
The Great Blue Heron has always been one of my favorite birds, especially on Cape Cod. They are so majestic as they fly and are so elegant.
This Great Blue Heron landed on the salt marsh right by our new home.
It was fun to think that I can walk by these salt marshes each day when we move into our new home and, hopefully, see a lot of different species of birds!
I was so surprised how many boats had been taken out of the water this week at Meetinghouse Pond in Orleans on Cape Cod. Wow!
They are stacked pretty high! I wonder if they will stay that way for the winter or if they have another “home” for the cold winter. Does anyone know what they do with all the boats?
With all of the high winds and rain from the recents storms on Cape Cod the past few days, the waves are humungous!
I drove down to the beach and to get a few photographs. It was so windy that I had to hold on to the railing as I clicked away with my iPhone. I was too afraid to take my camera out with the wind and spraying salt water.
You can see how high the water is in this photograph of Nauset Light Beach…it is all the way up to the dunes and it isn’t even high tide yet.
There is nothing like being at the beach in a windy rainstorm!
