The golden fly



If you look closely, very closely, you might see a tiny golden fly on the canna leaves.

Is it Étaín?

Nothing I take come out this clear! I tried to take a pic of a snail and it came out looking like a blurry alien.

Lori's "Canna Leafscape With Fly" ... wonderful photo! Such sumptuous colors. We're in the midst of a droughty period here and such scenes are only available in the wake of a sprinkler.

Another wonderful image. But if you look even closer and from a slightly different angle, you will find that the fly's face is the same as the hidden fairey gnome of a few posts past.

Lovely leaves and golden fly.

Have you ever seen the 1992 film called "Into the West"? Your post, with its reference to Etain and Tir na NOg, reminded me of that film, in which a contemporary story of Irish Travellers mingles with an old Irish story.

Lovely leaves and golden fly.

Stunning work, Lori. And I'm sure your link will encourage new readers of the auld tales.

In French the word etain also means pewter. but Aengus paid for her in silver and gold didn' he? (think it was Anegus) so you could also call her vermeil - the exact color of that beautiful little fly on your photo.
