Bah! I have the entire Firefly series on DVD! And the movie, too!(Okay, so I'm jealous.)
Aren't fireflies great? There are thousands of them in the field in my front yard...so fun to watch. The west is definitely missing out.Firefly trivia: Fireflies use their light to attract mates and otherwise communicate with each other. They flash a sequence and the firefly responding will flash the identical sequence back. It's fascinating to watch.
I love them. I take my pooch for a walk just at firefly time because she loves them more. Of course she eats them...
Weird... Catching fireflies or "lightning bugs" as we called them was a memorable part of my childhood. It's weird to me that only now have you actually even seen one.
squirrel boy - Oh, I'm jealous right back. (I do need to buy those.)becca - Yeah, growing up in the West, you think that fireflies are one of those things people made up to put into children's books. (Like monarch butterflies. And lighthouses. And cicadas. And . . . tornadoes.)I always pictured them as glow-in-the-dark bees, and I had only recently learned that they don't move like bees at all. And then, last night, I had to go out and get something from my car, and I walked out of my building and thought "there's an insect floating right at eye level and oh my gosh it's starting to GLOW! WHY IS IT GLOWING?! WHAT IS WRONG WITH THESE BUGS?! WHAT IS UP WITH THIS FREAKY PLACE?!"Oh, and I really like cardinals, too.
oh! I'm missing it! then I'll go on a mission and it will be too late!(assuming they're an endangered species.)
I'm right there with ya. I've still never seen fireflies or tornadoes or "real" storms. I just returned from a trip to Denver, which city I can now say actually does exist. "East" is just so foreign...
Indeed, I have never seen a firefly. I hope to see one sometime soon.
