After work, Freddie and I took an hour's hike at Breakneck Hill Conservation Land:
The light on the buttercups was lovely!
I noticed on the computer that this sparrow has a bad leg. It looks like its foot is broken. Poor thing! So far, it's surviving all right in spite of it.

This Red Admiral was flying around in the same area as a couple other butterflies, and they kept chasing it off. It tried to land on my pants a few times, but immediately flew off. I would have loved to try to take a photo of it on me.
