Do you know me? Most of the time, I sit and I fly around youYou see me everyday, but you don't know about me. I sit beside you, I sit in front of you, you get angry. I fly around you, you get irritated. But what can I do? I don't have any other alternative except sitting and flying. Know some important facts about me.
(a) I always survive on the liquid diet. I don't have anything to chew, so I have to drink my food. I regurgitate digestive juices on solid foods and these break down to small pieces.
(b) I taste my food not with the tongue because I don't have it. So, how do I taste food? I taste it with my feet! The taste receptors are located on my lower legs and feet.
(c) I can walk upside down. This is due to my anatomy. I can walk on any surface, be it horizontal, vertical or even upside down. This is due to my foot contains two fat foot pads.
(d) My reaction time is amazing! While your brain can process only 60 images per second, my brain can process 250 images per second. Further, my eyes are compound eyes (unlike yours), which provide me with a 360-degree field of view. So my reaction time is a thousand times superior to your reaction time. It is the best in this world.
(e) You may call me a born lover. As a male, I have a 'love-spot' within my eyes. This love-spot helps me to find and chase my female companions. I do it throughout my life.
(f) Despite having so many qualities, unfortunately, I don't survive long. My average life-span is only 30 days.
I have many other qualities. I do not survive long. Even then, I don't get any sympathy from you. Is it due to my improper eating habit and breeding habit? Who knows!
Have you identified me? I sit and I fly around you. Who am I?
