My image of the day today might be a bit divisive. OK, it’s a fly, and a common one at that. It buzzes around, sometimes chased my newspaper wielding individuals intent on ‘getting rid of that thing!’
Look again though, and marvel at the colour of it. If that insect were a dragonfly, or a beetle even – we’d all be in awe of it. Just because it’s a fly, we automatically seem to think we need to get rid of it. Not me, I kind of like these. Horseflies are a different matter – they bite!
