“The Fly and the Bull – by Harrison Weir” is a full page book plate image, taken from the “Chatterbox Album of Animals”, published by W.W.Gardner, circa 1878. The short anecdote accompanying the illustration, takes the form of a poem and reads as follows:  “One day a Fly, with heat oppressed, Upon a Bull’s horn sat to rest; But fearing she might incommode, The animal with such a load, She very courteously inquired, If of her weight the Bull felt tired. ‘Nay’ said the Bull in surly wise, ‘You need not thus apologise; Until your whisper reached my ear, I had no notion you were near; I feel you not, and shall not know, How long you stay, or when you go’. “
