This is a poor quality video of Jonah and fireflies. He was chasing them....til I got the camera, then they were landing on him.....


PS: the noise at the beginning is Miko drinking... :roll:

He was eating quite a few BEFORE I got the camera. I had to brush him off before he came in because there was about 6 of them on him. None at all on Miko though...

We had so many fireflies out tonight i was truly amazed. it has been about 3 years since i saw all the trees in my backyard lit up like xmas trees with fireflies.

Too bad we don't have a video of Dexter trying to catch them.

GENE you mean Jonah was trying to eat them?

:) I tried to take a video, but everytime I started shooting he would stop chasing :wink: I'm sure I'll get another chance tonight though.

Annmarie - we had a million out last night too! I hadn't seen that many this year yet either.

What an amazing thing to see...looks like Jonah had a great time with them! So...the question is...now will his poop glow? :shock:

gene - awesome video!! I loved watching it, thanks for posting it...:D

Jac and Annie, you guys ARE missing out....:( I grew up here in NJ, lived in Berkeley for 3 years, and then moved back to NJ with my family. When I was in CA I had a vague recollection of there not being any fireflies....but now I'm back and it's my nightly treat. I've loved them since I was a kid.

However, what Northern Cal lacks in fireflies, it certainly makes up for in the sheer beauty of the land....

Boy, you have that right...this is one of the most gorgeous areas I have ever seen. I love northern CA!

But, it would be nice to see fireflys! Someday...I hope to!

Lynn - where in NJ are you? I just realized that you are from NJ. We live in Matawan which is central NJ near the shore.

Jac...years ago one landed on me and i ended up putting a few in a jar for my kids to watch and then release. Anyway, one was on my fingers and when it fly away hahahha my fingers glowed for a while afterwards. it was so neat and funny cause my kids back then thought the firefly went inside me hahahhaa and that is how i was glowing like a firefly. :D

I'm in Summit - Union County. So that's about 2-ish hours away. Isn't there someone else here from Jersey too? - who it is is escaping me at the moment...
