Pre-monsoon Fireflies Festival begins around Maharashtra; Summer weather begins its transition towards monsoon. There is excitement in the air farmers are busy preparing their fields for the upcoming farming seasons. Birds are active building nest for their mating seasons. During this season Fireflies take center stage around Maharashtra.
We head towards Purushwadi Fireflies Festival to celebrate and witness these beautiful glowing fireflies at Night. During May and June months firefly emerge in thousands around the countryside in Maharashtra. Firefly emits unusual light patterns at night to attract opposite sex firefly for mating.
Fireflies belong to the beetle family they produce light using a technique called bioluminescence. Both males and females communicate using different patterns of the strobe light. This flashing pattern designs a fantastic spectacle for sightseers at night. Fireflies don't live long once monsoon starts, and they have completed the cycle of mating, laying eggs they die.
