We, that's the firefly and me of course, play a very funny game every summer! It's really easy.
On the first warm and sunny day little flipflap starts to yell "Beach! Beach! Beach!" every now and then and at every opportunity. Honestly, that IS annoying. And when we are there the "Beach! Beach! Beach!" mantra ends and is relaced by a cheery "Salt water is yucky! It's too hot! I've got sand on my wings!"......Very funny! *grumpf* (Not to mention that we live 500 kilometer away from the beach.)
But not this year! YEAH!
Looks like we found a "compromise": After several days of total ignorance wobbling wing capitulated and instead brought the beach home - sandless, saltless and well tempered! But nonetheless gorgeous! I love this little insect! :-)
