Adolph and Archimedes were buddies. They did everything together. Played hide-and-seek in the birch leaves, chased butterflies and hid nuts from the bluejays. Then, one day, Archimedes ate Adolph. Turns out Adolph was an aphid and Archimedes was a gall midge in the larval stage. Archimedes was a natural aphid predator. The butterflies and bluejays knew this would happen eventually, so, they played along with the two boys while their doomed friendship lasted.
