    Only one color, but not one size,
    Stuck at the bottom, yet easily flies.
    Present in sun, but not in rain,
    Doing no harm, and feeling no pain.
    What is it.

    ANSWER...I THINK...i think i know first i thought that it was light cause of 'sun but not rain'. and then with 'feeling no pain' is that it is not alive but it can still move becasue it flies. So that means something else moves it. It is only 'one color but different sizes'. So the thing that moves it that is different sizes but the thing is one color. So it has to be somthing that moves with somthing else of different sizes is one color not alive and has something to do with light. So i think its a shadow. That was a good one though.

    Shadow flies? And why is it 'stuck at the bottom'? A shadow can be created against a wall, too. It's got to be something else.
