8 Diamondback Terrapins Released at Sandy Neck Marsh

8 Diamondback Terrapins were released into the marshes of Sandy Neck as part of a Barnstable Natural Resources Program…Natural Resource Officer Sean Kortis lead a large group of young students and adults out into the Sandy Neck marsh to a brackish pond, the perfect habitat for the young terrapins…then it was a gentle toss into the water and a new life…the terrapins have a small “chip” inserted in a leg to identify them in the future…another endangered species that hopefully will flourish on the Cape.

As a child, spending summers in North Truro, I thought Cape Cod began at the Wellfleet Drive-In and ended at Provincetown.  As a photographer, I now know that all the Cape towns leading to the canal have their own unique beauty and charm.

Roughly 30 years ago, I had the good fortune to work with the legendary photographer Dick Kelsey and as owner of Kelsey-Kennard have specialized in aerial photography as well as landscape/scenic, portraits, weddings, and photographing events on the Cape, the Islands, and beyond.

Photographs from our Gallery in Chatham are displayed in homes and businesses locally and world-wide.

Besides photography I also enjoy boating/ fishing (fish are usually very safe when I’m out there,) gardening and tennis.  Cape Cod is a very special place and I look forward to sharing my images with you as I travel about.
