Winged Beauties: Inside the CCMNH Butterfly House

The Butterfly House is a wonderful living exhibit located at the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History (6A Brewster)…There are usually over 300 butterflies from 6 or 7 species in the screened house says Marjorie Williams the Animal Care Coordinator and tour guide with a vast knowledge on these colorful insects …Monarch butterflies are the most prevalent, and visitors can see their entire life cycle from eggs on Milkweed leafs, to Caterpillar, to Chrysalis, and if timed right emerging as butterfly…It’s amazing watching butterflies float around you landing/feeding from flower to flower…like bees, butterflies are an important factor in pollinating foods that we eat. This is just one of the many great exhibits and programs that you’ll find at CCMNH…Enjoy!

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.
