My husband and I volunteer at a park where there are a significant amount of synchronous fireflies. It is astonishing how many people show up and ask me "Is this all they do, are they going to do anything else?".

Like what? The tango?! Dude. THEY ARE FIREFLIES. THEY ARE DOING THE BEST THEY CAN. LEAVE THEM ALONE.

@franciecashman Obviously people are expecting a complicated firefly laser show.

@franciecashman I'm sad, though, I haven't really seen fireflies in a very long time. I think they used to be more common.
