Rabbits and Flies
I'll start with the yearly 'fly' hatching/migration/whatever. Each year around the end of March we become home to likely 250,000 flies. It has to be that many and they just show up in our general area- not just our house as I later learned. The day I took this picture was not a full fly day but getting there. This year I didn't freak out as I know the cycle (last year I freaked out thinking we bought a defective fly infested farm/house/barn). The flies hang around for a week or so and then the birds and bats come back and the flies all disappear. And thank goodness! I have no idea if that's the life cycle that is going to happen every year but I've now got 2 years where the results are consistent.
