Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Bug
Here’s Linda’s prompt for SOCS – Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “bug.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!
We were up in Kansas City, Missouri last weekend to visit family. As I was sitting out on the porch come dusk, the fireflies started blinking their little lights on and off, all over the yard and around the greenery.
I really like seeing these little bugs. We don’t have them where I live, and have only seen them other places we’ve been. We always just called them ‘lightnin’ bugs’.
I tried to take a photo of some, but you know what…it’s very hard to snap a picture at just the moment the little bugs flash their signal. It only lasts for a second, and they are flying here and there pretty fast.
Here’s my attempt at catching one at just the right time. Those little bright green parts on the first two photos are the bugs. The last one is a bigger view of the yard, and the little speck of light almost center is the light of the firefly, It’s enlarged some, in the middle photo.
Anyway, I sure enjoyed watching the lightnin’ bugs every evening.
“Fireflies”, by Owl City, was released in 2009, from their album, “Ocean Eyes”, and was written by Adam Young. It’s on the Universal Republic label.
Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️
