Isn't nature wonderful?. I've always known that Flies have multifaceted eyes, and they are hard to swat or catch, "BUT" i never knew this?. Part of our Marshall Arts training was to catch flies without killing them, and let them go, and that was bloody hard.
You sort of had to predict the Flies trajectory through the air, and Voila, fly caught.

That's a very interesting article. I've destroyed many items trying to kill those little b##tards. Fruit flies too. My wife used to make her own wine in the basement. The fruit flies became an epidemic here. You can rarely kill them by swatting because they are so light, the wind produced by the motion actually pushes them away.

We no longer make wine.

Nice post Poppa :flop:
