July 3, 2006 – Firefly/Lightning Bug Season

We’re in the middle of firefly season. Just before dark, thousands rise up from the fields. It is quite a sight, and although my camera is not able to capture their light, here’s a very cheesy photoshopped simulation of the fireflies over the garden!

It makes me wonder – this is only one kind of insect – just think if all the thousands of other kinds made themselves visible, what a parade of insect we’d see through the season and day.
