Yup ... Lightning bugs here in PA.  The little girl next door was trying to catch them the other night.

We have them at our place. Sometimes we sit on the deck in the evening with a glass of wine and enjoy the light show.

I like your way of enjoying the evening light show!  Sitting outside in the evening (if the skeeters aren't too bad) is such a wonderful way to spend an evening.  I also notice when the bats wing over head.

No, I don't have them here. My mom got to see them when she was young though in Missouri.

I don't think my grown grand-kids have ever seen one.  They grew up "in town".

It was such fun catching them...before cell phones and tv.  Back when we used to read paper (gasp) books to entertain ourselves.

I live in Ohio ,,,,,  We have those little cute things by the millions.  They light up my front yard every evening.  I have a plant on my front porch they must really like because they tend to get into it and the plant is always blinking off and on all night  LOL

My grandson and I are going to Charlotte, North Carolina in a couple of weeks, I cannot wait to show him the lightning bugs.  I think he will really be interested in them.
