But ragweed (one of my examples) has a large, thin leaf, barely any storage area, and no waxy cuticle, and withstands quite a bit of drought. Jewelweed, although it has a much reduced leaf area, and thick, watery stems, needs constant moisture.

@user137 Hmm, interesting theory, but if the fly has any depth perception, wouldn't it see the wall (if it can) as far away? It has no reason that I can see to know there is a surface at that point

@casey Yes, but flies will often fly into a window, while the same fly will land on a mirror.
