Flash In The Pan
Ferdinand the Firefly is a huge Eastern United States flirt! He recently vacationed in California because he heard the Western females were hot. He mixes his supply of luciferin with oxygen, calcium and adenosine triphosphate (info for the science freaks) to create a specific pattern of light flashing which informs the females that Ferdinand is a great match for them. Unfortunately, most of the Western United States firefly ladies have never seen this display and fly like hell to get away.
