Fireflies (sometimes called lightning bugs) are insects that all of us like chasing right? Confess that you have spent a summer evening chasing them when were a child. Or maybe you still like doing it? However, what was fascinating to all of us is the light at the very end (the last abdominal segment) of the lightening bug that glows a bright yellow-green color, at night. Do you know how and why these insects are able to light up? The answer is that they contain an organic compound in their abdomens called luciferin. As air rushes into the abdomen, it reacts with the luciferin. A chemical reaction gives off the familiar glow of a lightning bug. This light is sometimes called “cold light” because it generates so little heat. They can regulate the airflow into the abdomen to create a pulsating pattern.
Some experts think the firefly’s flashy style may warn predators of their bitter taste. On the other hand, some frogs don’t seem to mind. They eat so many lightening bugs that they themselves begin to glow. Male fireflies also light up to signal their desire for mates – and willing females attract the males with flashes of their own. Now, you can use their amazing glow to attract people around you. All that you have to do is to download this LWP (no money, no time spent), set on your background and show to your friends. They will get obviously jealous but amazed as well!
This partly nocturnal, luminescent beetle is the most common in the USA. They can control this glowing effect. The brightness of a single lightening bug is 1/40 of a candle. Males flash about every five seconds; females flash about every two seconds. These insects are more accurately called "lightning beetles" because they are neither flies nor true bugs. The life cycle of most species takes two years.
But not all the flashing of these insects is motivated by romance. While each species has its own pattern of flashing, some females imitate the patterns of other species. Males land next to them – only to be eaten alive.
Next time you see a lightening bug, keep in mind that their flickering isn’t just a wonder of the night. It’s also a unique, and sometimes deadly, language of love. Now you are wondering where to see a lightening bug? On your screen of course!
