Nice Variety of Wings

I started the day at Breakneck Hill Conservation Land, although it was only for a short half hour walk.   The dew was the star of the morning.

(showing why it was so named)

Great Spangled Fritillary

Eastern Bluebird

I can still see you!

Red-Winged Blackbird (juvenile)

And more dewdrops, my absolute favorite.  This grass (or whatever it is) has so many tiny little hairs on it that it really holds a lot of water.

 Ruby Meadowhawk (female)


For my lunch break, I headed over to the Sherborn Power Lines via the Barber Reservation entrance. Highlights included:

American Copper

Field Sparrow

Prairie Warbler

Southern Cloudywing
(a life butterfly, but not a very exciting one!)

Halloween Pennant (female)

Silver-Bordered Fritillary


Pearl Crescent

Common Pondhawk (female)

After work, back at home:

 Eastern Comma

barely visible when wings are closed

 Downy Woodpeckers (juvenile on left)
