Day 149 - Sis

I have read about them, heard stories about them, seen them in movie scenes but have never witnessed them myself. Fireflies or lightning bugs, whichever you prefer, are apparently living right here in the apartment complex!  I'm thrilled that I finally witness this beetle flying around tonight. My dog and I were out for her last walk of the day and in a quiet corner of the grounds when something flashed in my peripheral view, more like a blink of light and then another. My first thought at my age, STROKE!  My second thought, Tinkerbell, you're kidding. No I'm kidding. I whip out my phone, set it for camera and wait to snap the blink/flash, nothing. Just my luck, those flying beetles with tail lights had vanished or their batteries were low.
