Rick, Nice to know you remember too! I think the firefly is probably my favorite insect...and you captured it so beautifully...I just ordered your book Bee Dreams to see if I can apprciate (and overcome) fear of bees. Looking forward to enjoying it! Diane

Thanks Diane. I'll never forget those summer fireflies at Burroughs Farms.

Beautiful . . . So majestic, perched, overlooking his kingdom. Wonderful shot Rick. Do you remember all the fireflies in Burroughs? . . . They were breathtaking when the weather was inviting. Are you familiar with an artist named Michael Monroe from Brighton who paints local Michigan wildlife? . . . You both have amazing talent.

Thanks Alex. I wish their mating season didn't end so soon.

Thanks Bogdan. I think the biggest difference between Lampyris_noctiluca and the most common fireflies here is that the females don't have wings, but the males do. And the noctiluca males do not glow, whereas most fireflies we see here are the glowing , flying males. I'd like to photograph the different firefly species all over the world.

I think this is the most common type of firefly you could find here in Romania, but I'm not a specialist and I couldn't tell you for sure about other species, for the one in the link I'm sure as I saw plenty when I was at the countryside in my childhood. I just searched on wikipedia:

I wonder which species of fireflies you have in Romania? I'm glad the info helped, Bogdan.

Rick: we do have fireflies, but i haven't seen one for ages I think. Usually at the countryside you can find plenty of them during May, but since I live in a pretty crowded city, I think it drives them away. Thanks for the info btw, the 90mm seems to be a great lens.
