Last Monday I posted a bunch of photos I took of Osprey. All of these photos were taken in an hour. I was on Cape Cod on a “stay-cation” at my cottage for four days without any work. So what did I do for the other three days, 23 hours? Well, here are some more photos ;)
I have seen very few loon on The Cape. This time I saw several on two different bodies of water. I saw as many as three together and often saw two. I didn’t hear that call they make. Last year in Maine, at dusk, I sat and listened to loons call. It is a magical sound… However, at the end of April on Cape Cod, I did hear them “talk”. They made sounds back and forth. Very cool, if not quite the chilling call. Continue reading →
I spent a chunk of the last week in April on Cape Cod. On one of my walks down a Bell’s Neck in Harwich I watched about a half a dozen osprey hunt/fish. I took well over 200 photos! The sky was awful – it was cloudy and about noon.
My camera also did a weird thing in its focusing and exposure. I have noticed that occasionally some settings will seem to change randomly. Long and short, the exposures were awful for anything not pointing at the water. The sun did eventually come out and a couple of osprey flew by, so I have a couple of “sunny photos”.

Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a nice mug of a strong French Roast/Sumatra Roast blend, a cuppa tea of other beverage. The sun is out! It is relatively warm and going to get a little warmer! So we may have to make this short – the world is calling, no, screaming my name, right now. And where in the world are we? Some of you may recognize the photo as being in New Hampshire.
First weather. It was cold on Sunday and didn’t really warm up the way it was supposed to, it just stayed cold. The rain was supposed to hit in the evening and warm thing up, but it hit overnight and left two or three inches of slushy white stuff. All though it rained hard all day Monday, the snow didn’t go away, just got messier. It was a little warmer the rest of the week, but it was mostly cloudy so felt cold. It also snowed a little on Thursday morning. The ground was coated for a few hours. Yesterday was warmer (50 F/10 C), but because of the clouds and wind it felt frigid. today though… And the forecast… We may have Spring yet!
This post is about ducks and things of that nature.
Ducks are pretty common. Mot just that, but there are many types of ducks. The most common through most of the year are the mallards. Everyone knows them. We take them for granted, but they are quite pretty. Here are some mallards, though this is an older photo. Continue reading →
I have not done a photo post in ages. I used to do one a week. I’ve been caught up in other things and actually have over 1000 photos from August 2017 – December 2017 that I have not even looked at. It’s hard to go back, but I decided to go through all of photos I took this winter and early spring. Almost all of the photos were from the last two trips to Cape Cod – last weekend (around April 14) and around March 31.
I decided to do four posts. I will make the links “hot” as I put up each new post.
I was out the other day and came face to face with some aliens. Really! They were walking around the village of Dennis as if they owned the place. An invasion fleet, I’m sure. Yep, I came face to face with them, and they didn’t flinch.
And talking faces, they had blue faces. Blue! Can you imagine? I mean, yes, we see blue faces in Sci-Fi, like some of the characters in the original Guardians of the Galaxy movie. But how often do you come across real blue guys here on Earth?
And i think this guy had a trunk or something. I mean, what is that thing? Maybe a huge nose? Here is another picture, hopefully better than the first.
Hello and Welcome! Come on in and I’ll get you a nice large mug of strong Sumatra Roast, a cuppa tea (various kinds) or other beverage. It is still just a little cool and there and the wind is strong, but it is looking like a beautiful day! And where are we? Some of you may recognize the Beatles mugs as being on Cape Cod.
I have been out a little this morning. I’ve played with the dogs twice – they love being out! The run, fight, chase each other, ask me to throw stuff for them and then run some more, before finding a nice piece of wood to chew on while sitting in the warm sun. I also went down the the beach. It was cool and very windy, but nice. On the way to the beach I was stopped in a little traffic jam. A bunch of locals were crossing the road. Overall there were about 30 of them. They weren’t in any hurry and seemed to get irate if you tried to rush them. I stopped and took some pictures. Most of them ignored my, though a handful yelled at me in chorus whenever I turned their way. They said “Gooblegobblegooblegooblegooble!” Here is a picture of some of them strutting their stuff: Continue reading →
