June 26th Let there be Bioluminescence!

Bedtime - Tom goes to the window to adjust the shade. "Lightning Bug!" he says. I spring from the bed to watch.

Watercolor, some with iridescence, Zig Writer, Prismacolor Pencils, and Glow in the Dark Paint in Strathmore Mixed Media 500 Series Journal.

In the dark. 

In their abdomen, Fireflies mix a chemical called Luciferin with Oxygen, Calcium, and Adenosine Triphosphate and then Mother Natures says "Let there be Bioluminescence!"
