In this Sept. 19, 2016 photo, a firefly waits on a blade of grass for a potential mate to fly by in a field near Riverside Park in Victoria Texas. As summer dies down, fireflies are making a reappearance in Texas. The resurgence is likely because of a wet year, said Texas firefly researcher, Ben Pfeiffer. Further north, fireflies only occur during the spring. But while a warmer autumn may delay Texans' taste for pumpkin spice, the temperature and soil moisture brings a second firefly season.
