Sweet and warm

Young Savannah Sparrow.

Sunny, steamy—but still no rain. A productive day, a nice late-afternoon hike up the sweet, humid, warm hill.

American Lady, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 18 August 2015.

American Lady.

Birds about included sparrows (four species) and a group of panting crows. American Lady butterflies chasing each other around the west side of Beech Nut at the summit, as they do every year about this time. Ripening berries of all kinds.

Deep summer, sweet and warm.

Hazy overcast

Song Sparrow.

The day started sunny but developed a hazy overcast. Had an early disappointment which left me despondent for a while, but I got over it. And Jack and I had a good late hike.
