The deeps of the sky are mottled with singing wings of every color and tone -- clouds of brilliant chrysididae dancing and swirling in joyous rhythm, golden-barred vespidae, butterflies, grating cicadas and jolly rattling grasshoppers -- fairly enameling the light, and shaking all the air into music.
