The brief, sporadic sightings of blinking lights on a warm summer night is something I absolutely love about Chicago. They are my favorite insect by far. I've learned there are over 2000 species of fireflies (who knew?) and they are also called "lightening bugs". Bioluminescence is so cool!

Simply magical! Thanks Google Images.

Have you ever been to the areas where firelies are apparently extremely abundant? Some coworkers are heading to the Great Smokey Mountains this weekend to see them -
