Flies are an intriguing group of insects. Many are very important pollinators. Many, especially the Syrphids or Hover flies, are superb mimics of bees and wasps, and mimicry is a whole other area of great fascination!

Where there are flies,

There are human beings,

There are Buddhas.

--Issa, Japanese Haiku poet (1763-1828)
