Early Morning Sunrise Over The Salt Marsh On Cape Cod.

One of my favorite things to do this  time of the year is to get up and go for an early morning bike ride before anyone else is out on the road. Yesterday was just beautiful… the first day in a long time that wasn’t too cold or too foggy or too wet or too windy. It was just perfect!

I love the ride over the salt marsh with the sun just coming up. I took this photograph yesterday morning about 5:45 am. So pretty, don’t you think?

Looking For Lunch On The Salt Marsh… A Series Of Photographs.

We were taking a hike along the Nauset Marsh Trail past the Salt Pond when we saw this Great Blue Heron in the marsh stalking his prey for his next meal. (Click on blog link for series of photos.)

I thought it would be interesting to post a series of photos as he was so much fun to watch. In photos 2 and 3 you can see him stalking in the wetlands and then darting for the fish.

The 4th photograph shows his total contentment with his satisfying lunch.

And the last photograph shows him flying away…

Still my favorite bird… he’s just gorgeous!
