The fly

Ecclesiastes 10:1 ESV 

Dead flies make the perfumer’s ointment give off a stench; so a little folly outweighs wisdom and honor.

Like most people, I don’t like flies! They are disgusting! So, when my son opened the door to the back yard and held it open, I told him to close the door before flies started to come in. No sooner had I finished that sentence than I saw two flies make a mad dash into our home! We had food on the table as we were finishing up dinner and I did not want the flies to land on our food! I reached for the swatter and the flies were gone! It’s like they know, THE FLY SWATTER! No sooner had we started to clean up the table when I saw the flies again. This time, they were not so lucky, with ninja-like stealth, my hand grabbed the swatter and hit that first fly while it was still in the air! It landed on the table. I don’t know if it was dead or not, but it laid motionless. I had just purchased my first set of micro-lenses so I began to take some close ups of this fly.  Then, I carefully picked him up with a tissue paper and flushed him down the toilet.
