From winter's dormant woodlands and barren beaches, to the whales and waterbirds of high summer, this book explores Cape Cod's animals and plants through a year of dormancy, rebirth, and migration. In more than 150 photographs with captions, field biologist Peter Trull describes the cape's intricate ecosystems and reveals how beautifully the successive seasons come together. In spring he observes spotted salamanders mating after the March full moon. In autumn he looks for the colorful caterpillar of the monarch butterfly on wild milkweed, and in winter he focuses on the many species of arriving ducks that dabble along pond edges. The result is an intimate, often-exhilarating tale of Cape Cod and its seasons.
