Remember those summer nights when we were kids, and we’d look forward to the day, sometime in mid-to-late June, when we’d spot the first firefly of the summer? Who doesn’t love em?! What makes them light up? How long do they live? Can you tell the weather from their blinking??

Well, summer’s certainly in full swing here — and those magical lightning bugs are in full flight!
