Fireflies

One of the season’s memorable experiences is watching fairy-like fireflies decorate the darkness with tiny dots of light. Sure, we can tell you that this chemically produced “cold light," with no infrared or ultraviolet frequencies, is a crepuscular use of bioluminescence to attract mates or prey…but we prefer to liken lighting bugs to magical markers of a sultry summer’s night.
