I have been told they can be seen anytime in May, depending on a certain crop, what that crop was I just cant remember? Maybe the Boss will know, x

Thanks folks!
May is out this year as we're in Elounda crete for a week (more expensive for 1 week than for 2 weeks in Arillas at the end of July!) this is purely down to it being over a bank holiday weekend...such a rip off!

I shall definitely try and see the fireflies end of May 2018...sound amazing!

Suzy, we were in Arillas during the second half of May last year, and saw the fireflies.
They were as lovely as expected, but we had not known that they BLINK!

Fireflies do not definitely BLINK. - Their ass just continually switches on and off.

And..... do you know they are carnivorous?? This is why nature brings out wasps during the day and fireflies at night.
(Wasps are carnivorous too)

Can you imagine the "firefight" if both species met each other??

Even more fascinating if you were surrounded by both species.

You wouldn't know whether to watch the fireworks or treat the stings!!

anyway ...... off topic so whoever comes in May has to run the gauntlet of Negg or just accept the fact that I may bend yer ear at some point.

In Arillas early in May,
a visitor stops and says "Hey,
I see lights that go ´Blink´,
must have had too much to drink,
for the signal they send is ´Mayday`
