When I was a child, we used to always have fireflies in our backyard during the southern Ontario summers.

Here and now in Manitoba, they are a rare event.

This year, we’ve been treated to quite the firefly display right in our own backyard! What a spectacle!

I’ve been unable to get a nighttime photo of the fireflies in action, but here’s one friend that came for a daytime visit.

My bird girl who is also expert in flying things of all sorts told me that this is the male. Because he is larger than the female we also saw (but I did not photograph).

Do you see fireflies regularly where you live?
