I have often amused myself in summer by lying on the grass to see the quantities of different insects passing and repassing as if going to a market or fair    some climbing up bents & rushes like so many church steeples & others getting out of the sun into the bosoms of flowers    the most common seen in these busy motions is the long legged shepherd the green beetle & red and yellow lady flyes
