He ain’t heavy…

It was an unequal battle: one dead cicada, one ambitious fly. orange insect 25-8-14The orange-bodied fly was 1 inch long, but less than half the size of his fanciable dinner. The cicada looked about 3 inches long, toe-to-toe. We watched as the fly struggled to lift the dead cicada, managing to get one or two inches off the ground before dropping his prey. Very loud buzzing, a huge amount of effort. The fly gave up, the cicada abandoned. Imagine how frustrating that must have been!
