Summer has always been about fireflies for me.

Bamboo and Fireflies

And now Turtle is learning to love fireflies.

A Young Girl Reaches Out for a Firefly

She calls them "flyerpies".

 Fireflies in Jar

If she doesn't see fireflies she thinks it is day, and therefore NOT time to go to bed yet.

 When you drive in the country at night, the fireflies fly over the fields like little firework displays.

Fireflies From Over in the Meadow

 They also glow for a bit after they hit your windshield.

  1. We saw fireflies on vacation, they were one of the highlights of the trip.
    Thanks so much for this awesome collection of Lightening Bug Love!
    That shot of Turtle with the firefly is a one in a million, <3 M

  2. Alas I cannot take credit for that picture! These are all posters from various artists. If you click on the picture it should link you to the artist info :)

  3. Gosh, I've never seen a firefly! I bet they're really pretty (DS10 would be fascinated too). Must go google and see if there is any nearby country that has them...

  4. This is so cool! I haven't seen fireflies either, thanks for sharing! :)


Awwww, you cared enough to leave a comment! Thank you so much for making my day :-D
