Little Firefly




The first of the season!
Boy did this bring back memories!
We used to catch fireflies and put them in jars
at my grandparents house when I was a little girl.
Such fun memories!
Don't worry...this one was catch-and-release. haha.

    1. No British fireflies? Well, that is just amazing! They are magical.

  8. Aw. Do you know, I don't think I've ever seen one either. Perhaps they're less common here - or maybe I just don't get out enough, haha.

  9. Hi Betsy - I remember seeing them in the 50s ... but never since. They are amazing little things - and to think they were used to light up maps by wartime soldiers.

    Yes British fireflies ... they must still be around ... but in quieter areas. So lovely to see this - Cheers Hilary
