Revisiting the Folly

Flounders’ Folly, that is, at the highest point (just over 1000′) of the Wenlock Edge. It was much brighter and sunnier than our last visit, but not especially clear.

There were several speckled woods about, mostly too shy for photographer – and more commas than I’ve ever seen – dozens of them, posing lazily on the blackberries.
