Blogger Creative Challenge 276: Eye to Eye

Bluebottle

Now that is easier said than done. Which eye do you want, and which sort. I have the eyes for details and the eyes for moving things. See there is a grasshopper taking a jump, but do not ask me how many legs he has. Of course I know, but I then have to use my other eyes. I once looked a spider in the eye eyes. Luckily he hadn’t finished weaving his web so I was the one that got away. That could have been a nasty death for a fly, wrapped in threads as a packed lunch.

The problem is I never have time for an eye to eye talk. Every time I do a landing manoeuvre, someone takes a swipe with something and I have to move on – are you listening human? I once had an eye to eye talk with a lady fly: that was a long discussion until we had finished getting our eyes together, but successful. She had the most beautiful children and when they grew up that had such wonderful eyes, eyes, eyes etc. etc.

  1. Victor Borge asked the all important question. How does the fly land on the ceiling? Does he sort of rotate in the air making a lazy 180 to land upside down feet first overhead? Or does he fly right upt here and do a quick flip? No one has yet answered this to anyone’s satisfaction and it has nothing to do with your post, but thought you might find it amusing.

    • Most of the flies around here, the remaining ones, seem to be doing kamikaze flights and landing on their backs – fly time is gradually coming to an end.
