shoo fly!

Hey fly, don't I know you from somewhere? Your face looks familiar. Did you used to wear a bee uniform?


Flies. Hmph! They're so annoying! Sometimes I wish I had Superman's laser vision, so I could zap these pesky bugs in midair. Mwaaa-ha-ha-haaaa! Could you imagine the disastrous results if I missed? There would be burn marks on everything... and everyone.


Bzzz... Zap! Sorry.

Zap! Sorry again. Try not to stand in the way.

Zap! Okay okay, I'll go get a rolled-up newspaper!

Flies and maggots are nasty creatures.

I'd like to help you zap them, and mosquitoes as well.

Craver: I had one of those buggers on my leg last night. It thought it was okay to take a bite or two. It looks cute on your flower.

Craver Vii said...

Oh, they bug me, Imac... big time!

Sandman, imagine how fun camping and fishing would be without these pests.

nAncY, it's funny how the superheros didn't overshoot with the laser vision. The beam would go out just so far and then abruptly stop. Still, I wish...

Yeah Fishing Guy, this one thought it would be cute, but it's life was spared on account of it was outside the house. All of the inside of my house is zoned for squishing, splatting and swatting.

Yeah, I don't like flies either since they land anywhere, and are annoying with their buzzing. I'd rather see them out the door, but if need be I give them a nice swat.

Good pics as always, Craver.

Hi Craver... I've been away for a while so I'm just catching up on blog posts. I've never seen a fly that looks like a bee, Mother Nature is a pretty incredible artist, eh?
And those big blue/green iridescent ones that BUZZZZZZ like mad when they get stuck in the window..... so annoying!

Flies, what are they good for? I seem to have heard that somewhere. Beautiful photo!

Craver Vii said...

Ted, my wife asked why I swatted a bug rather than see it to the door. I have no kindness to offer most types of bugs when they are inside my house.

Shammy, since everything was created through Jesus Christ, I would like to ask him one day why he made flies. Even the pretty blue/green iridescent ones.

Yeah, Mommanator. I was tired, but kept making myself laugh.

Not to worry, Lime. You will be singing a new song soon enough.

Denise, if I were forced to guess what flies are good for, I'd say to train a young mans hands for speed or a keener mind for enginuity.
