Fireflies Trail - Bhorgiri

Fireflies Trail - Bhorgiri


Let the nature awe you with this phenomenon right before monsoons. The jungle will come to life when the tiny little self illuminated creatures will lighten up the dark forests. Yes it is the season when the fireflies will be flying around.

The glowing bugs are not actually the flies but are winged beetles. These insets mete during pre monsoon period and are available abundantly in wilderness during that time.

The bugs emit bioluminescent light they secrete a substance called Luciferin. This substance when comes in contact with oxygen produces a cold light with no infrared or ultraviolet frequencies. The light is emitted to attract metes during mating seasons. The mating does not happen or year around the conditions like humid air and warm temperatures are required. Thus pre monsoon are the most favorable time.

Zenith Odysseys plans to witness this extra ordinary event on 26th may 2018 and invites enthusiast to join.
