I love firefly! Oh yes I do, and living in the middle of a big city, it is very rare to see this fascinating critter. However, we do on those rare occasions; we saw fireflies in the summer.
At the Edge
Firefly reminded me of my childhood, and now of JoJo's childhood when I watched him chasing this flickering light at night during the summer. It was childhood at its most innocent, joyful, and excitement.
Ready to Go
My son caught this one firefly for a close-up and examination. He kept it in a jar with air holes on the lid, of course, and let it go the next day. Thus, I took full advantage of it in the first few moments the firefly left the jar to snap these photos.
