Madison the Midge Fly

Did you know that the midge fly is the only pollinator of cocoa plants (where chocolate comes from)??  Well, now you do.  And that is why the midge fly is in the Pollination Hall of Fame at the Bronx Zoo.  Even though she was barely tall enough to reach, Madison was able to become a midge fly for a few seconds on our trip to the zoo a few years back.  We probably should have sought out some chocolate after this, but we instead sought relief from the extreme heat on this particular hot June day at the zoo.
