Photographing a Firefly (Lightning Bug)


Capturing a Firefly

The other evening as I watched the firefly's illuminating across the yard I decided to obtain a picture of a lit bug. 

It turned out to be more difficult than I imagined and the results were underwhelming, at best.

A bright spot in the picture--that is a firefly. Wow!

I guess a time exposure would have been better to see it move across the field of view. 

I took a lot of pictures before I actually caught one of the bugs actually lighting. 

I tried looking at it in long exposure--to no avail. The bright spot near the middle of the image is the best that I could do, sadly. 

But, it was fun trying.
