Fireflies

Fireflies

Was watching this “Life Series” Documentary by David Attenborough , of course bought somewhere pirated along Shanghai streets.  Fireflies in Southeast Asia are unique among the fireflies in the world in such that they synchronize their light such that thousands/hundreds of them flash at the same time, which is not the case among the fireflies in the world.  The combined light can be so bright such that fishermen out at sea can use such lights to navigate their way back to their river banks.

Think I heard my friend Shili mentioned about such fireflies streams or rivers before on her trip, and maybe my Malaysian friends – Ivy, chengho and Rover peeps should check these places out!
