fly definition and meaning

What is a "fly"?

A fly is a small insect belonging to the order Diptera, characterized by a single pair of wings. With a diverse range of species, flies can be found in various habitats worldwide. They are known for their ability to fly swiftly and maneuver skillfully in the air. Flies have compound eyes, a pair of antennae, and mouthparts adapted for feeding on liquids or solids. Some species, like house flies, are considered pests as they can transmit diseases by landing on surfaces and food. Flies play important ecological roles as decomposers, aiding in the breakdown of organic matter. Despite being commonly associated with annoyance, flies have fascinating adaptations and are an integral part of many ecosystems.

What is a "fly"?

A fly is a closure or opening in the front of trousers or pants that allow for easy putting on or taking off of the garment. It typically consists of a zipper or a series of buttons, although in the past, flies were often fastened with hooks and eyes or even laced together. The purpose of a fly is to provide an opening through which the wearer can use the bathroom or change clothes without having to take the garment off completely. Some garments, such as skirts or dresses, may also have a fly, but this is less common.
