Cape Cod Beaches

are especially wonderful on sunny spring afternoons. These shots are from Long Beach in Centerville.

Piping plovers are on their nests and watching warily as people pass by. Horseshoe crabs are beginning to lay their eggs. Beach plum is nearing the end of its bloom while rosa rugosa is just beginning hers. Willets are nesting in area salt marshes and feeding along the edge....

Every beach is busy now with birds and other animals either nesting or preparing to nest. It's a great time of year to go exploring before the summer crowds set in.
