"I have a question... Where the f--- are all the lightning bugs? Where the lightning bugs go? Where the butterflies? I can't tell the last time I saw a butterfly."

Tammy's followers share her concern. One Instagram user wrote: "That's the real pandemic."

"My mom and I was just talking about lightning bugs," another user wrote.

And a third IG user wrote: "The city I work in is called the butterfly capital of the world and still NO BUTTERFLIES!"

Apparently, climate change has had no effect on fireflies.

There are still more than 2,000 fireflies in the world. They prefer humid regions and forests where there are few people.

If you live near Congaree National Park in South Carolina, the fireflies put on a synchronized display that light up the night.

Fireflies prefer rural areas, nature preserves, national parks and wildlife sanctuaries. They avoid densely populated ares such as Atlanta, where guns outnumber them.

Songbird Kelly Rowland took a private tour of a nature preserve in South Africa where she cradled a baby lion. Kelly is in South Africa to perform at a mansion party for wealthy South African businessman Douw Steyn. The public is not invited and the guest list is a well-kept secret. The opulent mansion is located in Fourways, North of Johannesburg, according to MSN Entertainment blog.

Andre Neveling, editor of heat magazine, says: “We’re massive Kelly Rowland fans at heat Towers, so we were thrilled to welcome her back to South Africa. It’s the first time since 2010 that Kelly has visited SA. She told us she’s really enjoying her new judging stint on X-Factor USA and that she’d love to return to South Africa for a full tour.”
