A Walk in Pen Argyl

It’s been raining ever since I got to PA, and forecast is more rain all this week. But I did get a gap in the clouds long enough to at least take a walk. Some quick photos.

  1. Anybody know the name of the flowers the fly is on? So gorgeous (the flowers…though the fly has some attractiveness…..I think his mother could love that face!)

  2. Jan: I am mostly plant-illiterate so I don’t know what the flower is. But that fly was pretty big–I think it might be a horsefly.

    He posed nice for me. 🙂
