Fly and Sky


I'm tempted to not explain this picture so don't feel you have to read the definitions unless you are curious.

According to Merriam-Webster, one meaning of the noun "fly" is a sheet of material (as canvas) that is attachable to a tent for use as a double top or as a rooflike extension. When I was a child and we went camping, my dad would string a tarp over a picnic table to provide shelter for us while eating and we sometimes called that a "fly." The fabric shown here was suspended over a picnic table near South Landing on the Shenandoah River. No one was picnicking though — it was cloudy, windy and cold!
