Tratar de describir lo que vi es un poco complicado pero mientras observaba en la noche vi una luciernaga, era tan pequeña y volaba rapido. La luciernaga era de color negra y en la parte poterior era fosforescente.

Description from Wikipedia

Lampyridae is a family of insects in the beetle order Coleoptera. They are winged beetles, and commonly called fireflies or lightning bugs for their conspicuous crepuscular use of bioluminescence to attract mates or prey. Fireflies produce a "cold light", with no infrared or ultraviolet frequencies. This chemically produced light from the lower abdomen may be yellow, green, or pale red, with wavelengths from 510 to 670 nanometers.
