Day 4: Fly on the wall

I made the hike to the lighthouse today for the first time since I've been back on the island. I discovered this beautiful little fly hanging out on the lighthouse lichen. The lighthouse was built in 1853 and, like many of the buildings out here, is covered in all kinds of amazing lichen in many shapes and colors. The walls are truly alive. If you look closely you can see my reflection on the fly.

This photo featured on National Geographic's daily dozen today. Check it out and vote for it to make it in the magazine!
