Don’t mind these unsightly boils on my body… they’re just black fly bites.
It’s black fly season. I have to say that, at first, these wee little insects didn’t seem half bad to me. I expected to be covered head to toe with tiny sets of teeth with wings. What’s the fuss all about I thought to myself about 2 weeks ago. Ok, well, then a week later I started to notice their wrath in the form of their aftermath… which, on my semi-allergic-to-all-things-that-bite body, looks like huge, bulging hives. It’s as if I have freaking duck eggs gestating just under my skin.
So in the spirit of black fly season, here’s a quickie animated film by Christopher Hinton set to Wade Hemsworth’s folk tune about the joys of black flies. Enjoy!
