An actual photo of a prior year's Fourth of July celebration in Nashville, Tennessee. We love fireworks so much. Besides being beautiful, they remind me of my family, because my whole family would get together and work at my uncle's fireworks stands. #OneofAKindNashville

These tails are extruded wax, the planthopper nymphs produce for a variety of reasons. In some, the wax forms into a fan shape that allows the insect to slowly descend when falling through air. Other times it is used as a simple distraction to predators. The wax is hydrophobic, too, so these ‘fireworks’ stand no chance of a rain delay.
