The arrival of glowing fireflies to the night scene brings such a sweet feeling to the summer.  These gentle floating bugs flashing to each other.  They blink some kind of soothing magic into me.  Watching them is so relaxing. Problems and stress vanish and I can’t help but give myself over to their sweet dance.

How do fireflies light up your life?

North American fireflies live two years underground as larvae and the final two weeks of their lives as adults, flashing, mating and laying eggs. Female fireflies start dialogues with up to 10 males in a single evening and can keep several conversations going at once. But a female mates with only one male, typically the one she has responded to the most.
