Jaak Põder - Horse fly
It’s a pretty nice feeling during a hot summer morning in the forest to realize that there are no blood-thirsty flies around because you have a silent… no, a humming protector that is chasing others away and is not interested in biting your flesh. Of course, this doesn’t mean there is pity or affection or such behind it — it just means you are in its territory.
