Lightning Bugs?...or Fairies?

Last night I made an impromptu drive to my parents house. It was already dark and when I pulled out of the driveway I saw something that made me stop my car and just sit and stare.

Hundreds upon hundreds of lightning bugs. They were lighting up the woods beside our house. It was one of the most magical things I've ever seen!  I could have watched them for hours.  I'm no stranger to lightning bugs (or fireflies for my non-southern friends) but I've never seen this many at once.  Just mesmerizing.

This is literally only a slight exaggeration of what I saw:

This is what I like to think I saw:

I love it when something beautiful and unexpected just smacks you in the face and makes you stop and take notice.
I hope I'm always this easily fascinated.

Have a magical weekend!
