Fireflies!

20120828-112808.jpg

People from rural areas know the joys of growing up seeing swarms of fireflies dancing in the warm summer night sky. Coming from the city, I never experienced it and am fascinated by their magical clusters of light. The photo below was taken in Japan in 2010-2011 using a slow shutter speed. (The macro is from nationalgeographic.com).

  1. Thanks for stopping by Keeping up with Carol and VERY COOL pics! I grew up with them, but had moved to Florida for the past 20 yrs and maybe saw a hand full over that time. We just moved to Colorado, and I hope to see many more. I’d never thought about a slow shutter speed with them – can’t wait to try it!

  2. Hi June. I am just wondering if the top photo of the Mason jar and fireflies is yours, or can you tell me where you found it? After searching all over the web, I can not find the person to whom it belongs.
