We saw the first fireflies of the season last night, and I was so excited that I had to make a card! LOL I used to catch them in a jar when I was a little girl in Virginia, but when the Navy transferred my dad to California, there weren't any there. I was so disappointed!
So, when we retired here to Tennessee, I was thrilled to be able to watch them flickering in the yard and the trees and the hay field. When they really get going, it looks like twinkling Christmas lights. Love it!
Obviously, I don't hunt them down with a jar anymore. I just like to sit on the porch and watch them hunting for a mate. I hope we have a good display this year. We had a rather cold winter, which can diminish the number of larva that live underground.
