Summer Nights

What's more classic than spending a summer night catching fireflies?
We couldn't think of anything, so out we went
armed with two empty peanut jars.

Yes, I'm out in the front yard in my pajamas.

An action shot of Husband on the hunt.

We each caught one firefly a piece and kept them for approximately 20 minutes
but the darn things refused to light up in captivity.
We even tried putting them together in one jar.  Nothing.
Oh well.
They lit up as they flew away which was just as exciting.
