Sex. Like everything else.
Sex was definitely in the air tonight then. Some horny MFersMale fireflies also light up to signal their desire for mates – and willing females attract the males with flashes of their own.
Yes to both. I've definitely noticed an increase this year. We were running around the yard at dusk last night.There seem to be more lightning bugs this year than the past few, but does it seem like there were many times more of them 20-30 years ago? I remember catching a ton very easily, but I don't think that's the case now.
Another fun thing to do at dusk... I love watching the bats fly around. If you throw a ball up in the air they will suddenly swoop towards it to check it out and then turn away when they realize it isn't food.
The plight of the little brown bat is one of the saddest stories in nature

Mom and her Cubs have been spotted on our hiking trail as well and I've been going with the camera to get some pictures (unsuccessfully) and here is one a block away from my houseWe had one show up on the biking trail that we've been going to last week.
