Etcher not detecting my APFS drive Mac

I am using Macbook Air 2017 Big Sur and want to install Linux onto my APFS drive. However, it does not detect the APFS drive for the target location. Any help is greatly appreciated!

You won’t be flashing direct to the drive you want to install to. You’ll be choosing a USB thumb drive for the install media target - and then shutting down the computer and restarting, holding the Option key down, to give you a choice of options. The USB is a “live” OS so you can play with it before install.

Thank you very much for the reply.
