Bumblings

I wonder what a bumble be,
And what could make the butter fly
And if a mayfly may - and if so, why?

Just looked it up! They are called Canadian soldiers in the US, but in Canada they’re called shadflies or fishflies. So there you go, your transatlantic biology lesson is complete!

Ah, apparently they are known as Canadian soldiers in the US, and as shadflies or fishflies in Canada. Thanks Wikipedia!
