Why is a fly called a fly 苍蝇 ...


There was a time when we have 
fewer words in the english vocabulary, 
we refer to objects by pointing our finger to it
...
A man was disgusted with an insect kept
bothering him on his meal and
pointed to it while saying "You, go fly away" 
...
There you are
the Butter-fly, Dragon-fly, House-fly etc etc 
...

Excellent macro! Great shot!
Flies are annoying and, certainly, they do not like anyone. But dragonflys always been fascinated.

I love this photo of a fly! It makes him (or her) seem beautiful instead of annoying.
