Inspired by rlands: Have you ever seen a firefly?
They are gorgeous. Especially if it a big group of them. They really do look like pinprick twinkling lights.
When we were in Missouri.
They are in my backyard every night.
Caught one the other day. Where are they not prevalent? I was under the impression that they were all over.
rlands poll asked if they were around where you lived, this is the link to the question so you can see the results. w.showofhands.mobi/polls/detail/?i=45068 It seems like they are mostly in the eastern U.S.
I didn't see my first firefly until I was 16. I was amazed.
Lots, growing up in Ohio, and after I moved back there for 13 years until I move here. Not so much in any of the other places where I've lived.
