Lightning in a bottle

We have a bumper crop of fireflies this year. Alice and Charles have spent a few evenings out in back trying to catch them. They tend to go for the fast snatch technique. I tried to show them how a slow and gentle hand will cause the fireflies to land for easy capture. Still, they did get a firefly in to their cheese dispenser (although I think it turned out the holes were large enough for the fireflies to escape — they had three at one point, after I captured two for them).
