More New Arrivals – Day 98

More new arrivals to our Cape Cod shores!


Even on the cloudiest of days, these Piping Plovers…


Come with their own special blend of sunshine…


And sheer cuteness.


Welcome, welcome, Little Ones.


Be safe, be well.  ❤

The Loons of Winter – Day 96

I am going to miss our Common Loons when they leave us soon.


These loons in our harbors, became my friends during hunting season.

Like this one I often visit with at Wychmere Harbor, whose plumage is really starting to change as the time for making new loon families draws near.


Like great, wide, slow-moving barges, these birds paddle, submerge and…

Yes, I have even caught them napping, every now and again.


If I do not see you again before you leave, Dear Loon, be well, be safe.

‘Til we meet again. ❤

The Serenity of Swans – Day 95

This morning on my way to photograph an  osprye nest replacement platform that Eversource utility built for the ospreys (long story)…

I saw a flash of white, by the bridge at Herring River.


I simply had… to stop.


Perhaps I was in need of some beauty…

Or perhaps, a little peace.

In any case, I am so very glad I took the time, to look upon this stunning creature.


How we do need to see “the Beauty”, in a world filled with far too much of “the ugly’.


It’s a new day, tomorrow, and a new chance to look for that Beauty, again.

‘Night all. ❤

A Piping Plover’s Bon Appetit – Day 89

Ever wondered what Piping Plovers EAT to give them the energy they need for all that running they do along the shoreline?


Teeny tiny insects, marine worms and crustaceans comprise their “bon appetit” each day, and when they first arrive here they sure are MIGHTY hungry!


Bon Appetit!! 😉
