The Sound of Silence.


You know what I like? Flies that don’t buzz. That don’t moan or whine or squeak. They just go about their business. Which in many cases, thankfully, is not wallowing in others’ poop.

I spotted this little fellow in my backyard. FYI, my backyard is 15 feet wide and 40 feet long and has walls on all sides, and two coconut trees in it. That small stretch of space is home to numerous settled and visiting critters. I found this fly (It has wings and can fly, so ‘fly’,) on the underside of an old tuLasi kaTTe.
