Suki and the Fireflies

Last night after Chris mowed the grass, he caught a jar of fireflies and brought it in for his "invalid" daughter to enjoy.  However, Suki had more fun with the jar than Mina did!




As they crawled around in the jar, the made clicking sounds and then with their flashing lights Suki was enthralled!  Did you know that west of the Rockies there are no fireflies?  I didn't know that until several years ago when my brother, Robin who lives in California, visited.  His family had never seen them before, and it never occurred to me that fireflies were not found everywhere!

Yes, Suki would love that too! She is the example of "curiosity killed the cat", she is so funny!

I am a native Californian and had never seen them until I moved to KY, they are a hoot. My kids take them for granite.

Im not sure if I have ever seen them here either....i never thought about it though because i dont catch them anymore (i should though that was fun as a kid!)

I think they are magical little creatures. Granted, as kids we sometimes would make them into rings or use them as make up, but as an adult I enjoy watching them flick on and off across the yard. Reminds me of tiny little fairy lanterns!
