The Furry Dance

Also known as the Flora, this dance takes place in and around the Cornish community of Helston, in early May. This photo was made shortly after sunrise, in 2003. It's quite usual for the dancers to weave in and out of houses in the town, all to celebrate the coming of Spring and increased fertility!
From my book, "Being English"
