Lightning Bugs

I hope everyone's enjoying their weekend. This is a nice little video about a couple of kids chasing after lightning bugs in the summer twilight near Great Neck, NY. I don't remember seeing lightning bugs as a child but they often flew around our home during my teenage years. I never tried to catch them, but they were always a delight to behold.

I've got them in the scrub brush in the vacant field behind my house. On a good night, they can put on quite a show. I was surprised when I first saw them - I dunno, I guess I thought it was something unique to back home. Must be a different species or something, but they look about the same from 100 feet away in the middle of the night.
