Fireflies

no way to describe or show this but ...

Last night I was outside saying goodbye to my wife as she headed off to work 3rd shift. Normally I stare at the stars for a moment or two (odd sort of therapy) but instead I looked across our pasture (we live in the country on 40 acres) and I was amazed.

Fireflies, lightning bugs - whatever you like to call them - by the hundreds if not more.

Doing their little blinking thing. I stood and stared for a few minutes.

Up north they get to see the Northern Lights (that Aurora B. thing) - maybe we can call this "southern lights"!

Better than TV!
