Musca Domestica

Musca domestica is Latin for house fly– never thought one would appear here in a glamour shot.

The image was just too pretty to pass up. And then Emily made it even more endearing.


Bee, I'm expecting you!

Was saying yesterday

To somebody you know

That you were due.


The frogs got home last week,

Are settled and at work,

Birds mostly back,

The clover warm and thick.


You'll get my letter by

The seventeenth; reply,

Or better, be with me



~ Emily Dickinson

Soon after preppng this image, I happened upon Mr. Fly's letter in this charming book.



Yay, ED for children !
