View Full Version : Summer - big, black bluebottles - shudder

The change in the weather has brought in a most unwelcome visitor. I had been shopping today and hands full carrying bags of groceries I juggled, put a couple down to open the door and stepped in... whew, thank goodness for that. However, my relief was short lived. I now had company.. zzzZZZZzzZZ.... I looked around for the source.. was it a wasp, a bee or a big, fat, black fly. It whizzed past my nose and landed. Yuck a bluebottle and can you believe I am still on a mission to find and clobber it before it gets too carried away? Must be losing my touch. Used to be pretty good at moving them on.

Flies take off backwards. Always aim 1 inch behind them ;)
