We never found out how they arrived; suddenly they were just everywhere. They flew about with a sense of freedom, they bounded around light and tight and buoyant, not coming close. If we approached, they sped away. They never touched us, nor invaded our homes. They seemed flighty, fragile, decorative at most, though some people were anxious. The main complaint was that there were too many; gathered in clouds they hovered, watching us. Some were found drowned at the edge of water, but the swarm learned and they stayed on shore. A rainstorm would probably remove any danger of infestation.
