Some have always wondered why anyone would want to become a fly, although people have done so in both Daventry and the Other World. One could use the fly spell to spy on others, literally becoming a fly on the wall, but while one might not be spotted, one might get swatted or caught by a spider. Eagles have beaks, talons, and the ability to swoop down on prey. Swooping in sunlight or soaring on a thermal, the eagle's appearance is seldom greeted with revulsion. Eagles almost never sit on windows, walls, or drinking cups, so the literature contains no reports of them being smashed to a pulp by a casual swipe, or of being prey for arachnids--giant spiders.
