This Great Blue Heron, my very favorite bird, had just landed at Nauset Salt Marsh on Cape Cod. It is always such a treat to see them.
Love his spread wings… such a beautiful bird! Great pose, huh?
This was one of the most beautiful sunsets that we’ve seen on Cape Cod this fall. As the sunset colors brightened over the waters of Cape Cod Bay, the cars startin driving ing into the parking lot and people were streaming out onto the beach looking for that perfect sunset photo op.
Spectacular, don’t you think?
It was low tide at the Wellfleet Audubon Sanctuary on Cape Cod so we were able to walk all the way out to the beaches. You have to walk part of the way on a boardwalk that is submerged when the tides are higher.
We were treated to many shorebirds that day darting about the eddies, looking for food. But this Greater Yellowlegs was absolutely stunning as he waded through the water.
What do you think?
