Have you ever seen fireflies? They are the prettiest things! When we were in Italy recently we went for a stroll at dusk. As we walked up the path towards our villa we spotted hundreds of tiny yellow lights flickering along the ground and in the trees. I have to confess that initially I thought someone had got all creative and Pinterest happy with some LED lights.
Disclaimer – we don’t have fireflies in Australia!
I actually gasped when I realised that the little lights were fireflies. They look like little fairies flitting around the night sky. Nature is truly magical. I can’t wait to see my children’s faces when they are old enough to appreciate this bewitching sight.
I searched everywhere for a great image of how the fireflies look at night as I wasn’t able to capture the moment myself. It seems fireflies are elusive little creatures and won’t be pinned down! Instead, here’s a video from National Geographic
