I noticed that the fireflies and the crickets seemed to be most active while it was still hot and muggy... when it started to cool they quieted down and fewer and fewer winks... so I thought I could make some fireflies with a cricket, a temperature sensor, and some little lights. When I built it there was some of that fake fur available, Very Green! it seemed perfect for grass... So I embedded the LED's just on top of the green fur, and as the air warmed... the fireflies flickered and as it cooled, they stopped.
