almost July. catch firelies with me
i haven't seen a firefly since my arrival in Portland, Oregon, Halloween, 2005 but i couldn't help but dedicate an whole entry this evening to why fireflies do what they do. 'fireflies blink to attract a mate. males fly around while females sit in trees, in shrubs, or on the ground. here is some summer fun for you. find a female and watch her blinking pattern. try to imitate the pattern with a pen flashlight and the males will come to you.' hmmmmmmmm...can you imagine if we had a blinkety blinker of some sort to be used when attracting our mates. as if!!!
