Turned On

If there is such a time as Glow Worm season it must be now. While hiking last night we spotted two little lights just off the trail under some bushes and everyone stopped to look. Then we realized that there were two more about a foot away. Someone said they looked like a discarded cell phone. Further down the trail there were a few more scattered about and then a little further on an entire constellation of them shining in the dark. I am very familiar with fireflys, also known as lightning bugs, from childhood summers in the midwest, but these glow worms are new to me. Fireflys blink on and off, but the glow worms simply turn on and then stay that way.

I wonder what excites them so much.
