Bhandardara Lake Fireflies Festival Camping 2022 | Fireflies Festival Mumbai & Pune

What is Fireflies?

Fireflies are sometimes called lightning bugs. Many a child have spent summer evening chasing them.
And may be you ‘ve wondered how and why are these insect able to light up.

The answer is that Fireflies contain an organic compound in their abdomens called luciferrin. As air rushes in to the abdomen, it react with the luciferrin. A chemical reaction gives off the familiar glow of a firefly. This light is sometimes called “cold – light” because it generates so little heat. The fireflies can regulate the air flow in to the abdomen to create the pulsating pattern.
While each fireflies species has it own pattern of flashing, some females imitate the pattern of other species. Male land next to them – only to be eaten alive. So the next time you see a firefly keep in mindthats it flickering isn’t. Just a unique & sometimes deadly languages of love.
