Flight of the Fireflies

Today Finn and I were outside just as dusk was falling. Still light enough to see, but getting dim. Finn suddenly started staring intently in front of his face. He then snapped, and jumped forward. He stopped and was again staring. I had seen him act this way trying to catch flies and bumble bees, and I realized Finn had just noticed the fireflies! I think he had never realized the occasional flickers of light were bugs!

He was very focused on his hunt. Watching intently, then snapping at the firefly the minute they lit up. He jumped, whirled, and leaped, snapping at them. He never did catch one, but I was laughing so hard I had to sit on the bench!

I wish I could have video taped it.
