Between the cabin and the site is a glacial erratic in the intertidal zone. It is quite high up, with its feet rarely in the water. At the base of the erratic are sporadic and small clumps of the hairy or northern cinquefoil (Potentilla villosa). On the stone itself there are large clumps of the flowers. While we were on Kilgii Gwaay it was in full bloom and I went to the rock one day to take pictures.
One thing that caught my eye was a fly in disguise as a wasp, that was visiting the blossoms, one after another. Today’s post features the fly on the cinquefoil. Other post(s) will have some other shots from this session.
