You just know summer has arrived when you begin to see little lights blinking in your back yard in the evening… It’s firefly season!
These little bugs are so much fun to watch as they dart around daring you to try to catch them!
As a child I remember putting them in glass jars so I could watch them up close. It’s really hard to get a photograph of one! If you do catch one, please let it go. Seems they too are endangered.
I love watching them twinkle! If you want to know how they do it, check out this site:
Or you can read this cute little book! All About Bugs by Houghton Mifflin, illustrations by Leslie Harrington.
Hope you have time to sit outside and relax this evening. See if you can see any lightening bugs winking at you! It’s the little things that make life special.
