Then, with their new bug in a box, they knocked at Darwin's door. "We caught this bug in a field,'" they said. "Can you tell us what kind of a bug it is, Mar Darwin ? Darwin looked at the bug and then he looked at the boys. 'He smiled slightly. "Did you notice whether it hummed when you caught it, boys?" he asked. "Yes," they answered, nudging one another.
