Sunday Best on the Verge of Fall

Welcome to Sunday Best, and as summer draws to a hot, sticky close we have an amazing lineup of contestants for you today!

Contestant #1, such a lovely little female sparrow, basking in a sunset glow — is she House, or Savannah??

Contestant #2, Baby Bunny, low in grass. I don’t think she can see me.

Contestant #3, a slightly rumpled Seagull, setting sail in search of unsuspecting crabs!

Contestant #4, Neon Man, definitely on the fence about summer being over.

Contestant #5, a gorgeous catbird, insistent that his back side was, indeed, his best side.

And finally, Contestant #6, a young – and very noisy – Blue Jay, one of our best avian tree ornaments on the Cape.

Sunday Best, Take 6

Good morning and welcome to Sunday Best here at Images of Cape Cod!

I have 6 worthy contestants for you today and I am excited to present them to you, one by one.

Contestant #1, the Great Egret, seen earlier this week soaring out beyond the channel at Mill Landing as if pulled by the sea.

Contestant #2, this Green Heron, standing up on tippy toes as tall and bright-eyed as any I’ve ever seen!

Contestant #3, the Kingfisher surveying his domain from on high, scolding me as always because I stayed too long to admire…  😉

Contestant #4, the tiny Song Sparrow, ever present in the marsh when I arrive and when I leave, whose tiny frame belies his glorious Pavarotti tones.

Contestant #5, this slate gray Bullfrog seen right outside my door this week, clearly enjoying his Saturday off.

Looks like these little sparrows have figured out what it takes to get thru’ the summer heat wave.

With a little team work, they help each other find all the best puddles…

And have a little fun in the process!

Don’t forget to check on those you love during the heat, especially our elderly, the critters and the kids.

And keep cool everybody!  🙂
