Why do house flies pause and continue walking when they are traveling across a surface?

No creature can be continually in motion. They have limited energy, just like us. They must rest. ON THE WALL OR SURFACE IS WHERE THEY FIND FOOD, SINCE A SURFACE IS THE BEST PLACE FOR ANY WEIGHABLE PARTICLE TO STATION.ESPECIALLY DISEASES. MO.T.
