Romancing the firefly:- Fireflies (Kajava in Marathi) The fireflies mating season generally lasts for a week and occurs annually after first rain of the season. If you are roaming around in dense forests in Bhandardara region after first spell of rain you will be spellbound to see the whole forest is glittering in tiny green lights. The exact times of the year which fireflies start to present can vary each year, scientists still haven't discovered exactly what triggers the fireflies to begin their yearly ritual except that the temperature and soil moisture play a small part.Once the season initiates, a small proportion of individual insects begin to flash, then slowly as time goes on more begin to flash.Once the peak is reached the insect numbers gradually begin to decline each day as the mating season comes to a close. This Phenomenon is largely seen in dense forests in Bhandardara region and mountain road around Harsul near Nashik.
