I am glad to know I am not the only “adult” who still thinks seeing fireflies is cool. We ha e a couple that hang around our place and I still get excited when I see them. Where I grew up we never had fireflies and I don’t remember them being at my grandparents in Washington Star so when we went to Tennessee the summer before my 7th grade and I saw them everywhere it something that has stuck with me through the years. Man those things were everywhere in Tennessee, inside the hotel in packs even.
So far this summer I haven’t seen our neighborhood opossum or the sissortail fly catcher that used frequent the fence on the south side of yard. Never knew I’d miss seeing a opossum
