Love this article! As a kid living out in the country with no playmates nearby, I would sit for hours and watch the fireflies. They mesmerized me; even to this day I will sit on my back deck and watch them. Now I actually know something about them! Thank you!

In answer to your question …yes I do see fireflies every spring for just a short weeks… and to me they are a wonderful sight i never tire of watching them …this takes place as i say in the spring on the island of Corfu in Greece, I have lived here for 20 years (from England originally) and look forward every year to seeing the beach area covered in tiny fireflies they never cease to amaze me ..Thankyou
