The Fly

A fly being useful? (Click picture for larger view) Posted by Picasa
The Fly
God in his wisdom made the fly
And then forgot to tell us why.
~ Ogden Nash
I generally do not appreciate flies and adhere to the concept that the "only good fly is a dead fly" but this fellow with his iridescent body, translucent wings and bright red eyes is quite lovely. I bet he's a little dizzy right now having to look at a hundred different images of my camera; I'm glad we don't have the compound eyes as insects do. Oh, look; there's a little ant trying to hog the limelight. Which insect to you like best? Ladybug, dragonfly, bumble bee? Remember, spiders aren't insects as they have eight legs rather than six.

Submission for PXITE topic "fly". (They may be thinking verb and not noun. (end of post)
