The one thing I've been dying to see since we moved out here is fireflies. I was pretty disappointed when we got here at the end of last summer and didn't see any. There were certainly plenty of cicadas to go around though (and keep me up all night).
Tonight the DQ went to her first YW activity for the upcoming Girls' Camp. (She had a blast) As we were leaving, I happened to see something tiny flash out of the corner of my eye.
So like a crazy woman, I drove to the back of the church parking lot and sat there trying to capture one.
And capture one I did!
When we got home, I braved the biting flies and spiders and stood in the backyard for about 20 minutes trying to find more. I did spot a few, but I think they spotted me too because by the time I got the settings right on the camera, they stopped flashing.
Oh well. I was glad I got at least one.
Now I have a new nightly obsession.
