Only male fireflies can fly— female fireflies often can't because their wings are too short.

The female firefly perches itself on a bush or a rock and waits. When a male passes by with a signal the female recognizes, the female flashes back the same signal. The male lands and touches the female's antennae. This is how fireflies smell each other. If the female smells right to him, the two fireflies will mate. Unlike natural and human-made light, fireflies' light gives off no heat - it's called bioluminescence.

┗▶ This is also one of the phenomenons where you get light without heat !

┗▶ Frogs sometimes eat enough fireflies, that they themselves start glowing.
