Not my 100% best quality shot, but this was back when I only shot on jpeg and god knows sometimes even 16 million colors isn't enough for the fine gradient between your light source (the moon) and a starry sky. Regardless, still a pretty cool scene with lightning bugs on a hill in front of the moon. Got my pants and shoes soaked to get this shot but it may have been worth it :P

Please tell me what you think! :dance:

This is a neat shot. Capturing fireflies is a little difficult for me, I can't seem to have enough around in order to leave the shutter open long enough to get it this bright and clear. This looks like it was taken just after sunset, but that may be the light exposure and length of shutter open. I like the color of the sky is what I'm trying to say lol.

I don't recall the last time I saw fireflies, they have been disappearing around here for the past 15 years. Current theory is light pollution affecting the mating light displays leading to smaller and smaller populations. I wish I could see that many in one night again, I miss it. You should totally recreate the shot when the opportunity presents itself!

I'm having a hard time believing that's the moon, then again I doubted my parents when they told me I could see at night with a full moon .
