Photography: Summer Romance and Fire Flies
This is a Lightning Bug (aka Fire Fly) perched on a leaf in my backyard right before the night shift. Here is an interesting fact: I read that the female Fire Flies sit on vegetation near the ground and wait for a flash of the tail from the male Fire Flies. Well, when the female is interested she flashes right back and the mating begins. However, the flash has to be of a distinct pattern because the females are careful not to attract a male of the wrong species. So, I imagine the divorce rate among Fire Flies are pretty low. Here's to summer love. *toast*
