All but the Pine Warbler cooperated for photos (relatively speaking).
At lunchtime, I took a hike along the Sherborn Power Line trail, hoping for a butterfly sighting. Sunshine was spotty, but apparently it was sufficient to bring out at least two nice species: Eastern Pine Elfin and Gray Hairstreak. (also two Cabbage Whites)

Gray Hairstreak (a beauty!)
I enjoyed the wildflowers blooming along the trail:
I think this is also wood anemone, although the leaves are much darker and reddish.

After work, I saw a Pine Warbler outside, so I went out again to try for a photo. I got it and a Blue-Headed Vireo! Woo hoo!!
This was the bird I saw on my hike last weekend at Purgatory Chasm, but it was high in the treetops. Look at this view! It came down low over the brook and posed so nicely! Love it!
