It's firefly season on the mountain. These amazing little creatures only appear for a few days every year, just on dusk, and flash their bright halogen-like lights to attract a mate.

They like the moist rainforest, and for the last few nights we have seen their twinkling lights in the bush around the house. It is a really magic experience to walk around amongst them, and one we look forward to. By tonight there will be just the odd loner still looking for a mate, then they will be gone again for another year.
