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:

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 .
