Fireflies - wonders of summer in the foothils of the Sibillinis

The light is their mating signal
The light is their mating signal

Last night we were sitting outside with our guests when the fireflies appeared, darting between the walnut trees. I had never seen them before living here in Amandola but I love them! They are truly magical and make our meadow below the terrace look like Fairyland.

 

I'm told we have them because the air is clean....
