Lightning bugs or fireflies are one of the pleasures of the summer season. They are magical - lighting up the sky at dusk.
As a child, what fun it was to run around and catch lightning bugs and put them in a jar. We would then use the jar as a lantern. My older brother would try to explain to me why they glowed, but I knew it was really magic.
Even today, I love to see them in the yard. It brings back all those wonderful childhood memories.
