Mt. Washington, Coos County, New Hampshire, USA

Plucked this longhorn with a bad haircut off the observation deck wall atop the Mt. Washington weather observatory. It was a nice day and insects from all around had come to the summit for a ritual rendezvous orgy.

I didn't even look in Yanega yet. I so enjoy IDing others' images that I usually leave mine for someone else to ID :-)
