On Sunday, while watching an outdoor performance, we were plagued by a bunch of little bee-like flying insects. Come to find out (after a little online research) that these are hover flies (Sphaerophoria philanthus). At one point, I had them on four fingers of one hand. In the brilliant sunlight, their wings sparkled. I'm making this haiku into a haiga for next Sunday, so come back to see a real hover fly!
