They are dancing again

gandle(4 NE)July 5, 2014

Was going to say hundreds of them. Probably a good 4 or 5 dozen are dancing in my back yard. Fire flies of course.

And today for the first time this year, the A.C. turned on.

Yes, they are dancing again and it would be fun to sit on the porch and watch them if the mosquitoes weren't there looking for a blood donation.

They are out in force here too, even in the house. I left the backdoor open while putting trash out and came back at the front door. About half an hour later I closed finally the backdoor. When it got dark, I had 5 fireflys in the family room. It took a few minutes to catch them and get them outside.

I am rarely out when it's dark enough for "lightening bugs", wnich is what we called them as children. I will make it a point to go outside, tonight, when it's really dark and see if I can see, any.

I miss the lightening bugs, too. We don't have them here. Been at least 55-60 years since I have been where they are common.
