Fireflies in Tanzania • Excerpt from Thimblerig’s Ark

“The sky to the south was lit up with thousands of tiny bits of green, blue and yellow lights flowing like a river up and over their heads, as if the stars themselves had come down into the atmosphere and joined together as an endless flock flying overhead. Weaving and bobbing as they went, some winging down to fly circles among the other open-mouthed animals before rejoining their brothers in the sky, thousands of fireflies were all heading in the same general direction straight ahead.”
