Nice pictures Mustansir, Rafique sb, and Hamad bhai. I think Mustansir's bird is a male koyal. Is it correct?

Do we still have fireflies (jugnoo) in Lahore? I was mesmerized to see them at night and this was in the early 90s. I never saw a single firefly in Karachi.

Yes Fireflies are often seen after rain in nurseries or areas where there are natural vegetation growing.
