Every summer evening, rising from the cool grass, or emerging from the trees, comes a swarm of tiny lights. Swirling about, in glowing motion, they search for their mates. They brightly blink in anticipation, hoping their display will bring them their goal. These magical insects, found mostly in warm, humid climates, are not "flies", but are actually beetles. The male firefly, or lightning bug, uses his bioluminescence to attract a mate. While the female, perched on a nearby tree branch, blinks back her approval. Lightning Bugz was inspired by these amazing creatures. Although the bioluminescent light produced by actual fireflies range from Green, Yellow, or Orange, I used some creative license and made a Red, and Blue species as well. Options include choosing colors, the number of fireflies, scale, speed, and blink pattern. You may use Lightning Bugz for FREE, but if you register for $5.00, you also get additional features such as, "View Desktop" mode, custom background color, or image, and additional colors.
