"I had some guest over for a pool party and I had picked bouquets of flowers for the tables.  He came to join the party and one of the "city" kids thought he was a horsefly or a bee.   I about came unglued when I found out they had zapped him with the fly swatter.  He seemed undaunted and continued to hang around the party.  Is it normal for them to appear almost friendly?  I can hold my hand out near the flowers and he will flutter over it without any fear of me.  I just love him.
