Synchronous Firefiles

Info from the following website: https://smokymountains.com/park/things-to-do/synchronous-fireflies-smoky-mountains/

"Located just a few minutes from the hustle and bustle of downtown Gatlinburg and its millions of summertime visitors is an incredible natural phenomenon known as synchronous fireflies. This breathtaking show put on by nature resembles a psychedelic combination of stars falling and fireworks exploding – It is an immersive experience you will never forget.

The tens-of-thousands of lightning bugs gather in swarms and flash in harmony as the entire forest alternates between light and darkness. Right here in the Smoky Mountains, near the Elkmont campground, is the largest population of synchronous fireflies in the Western Hemisphere."
Now that would be something to see for real - the nearest we get is glow-worms!

@vignouse @milaniet It was majestic. We were very lucky to have a guide who took us to a more secluded spot. The place where they are “supposed” to be required a special ticket - but the fireflies didn’t know that was the designated area for them.
