Dear Tsuneaki Hiramatsu,

I'm writing from New York City. I really enjoyed your firefly photos--are they available for publication?

Please contact me-- I am

+Ryan McGovern Thanks for your comment.
It is my blog. (
I didn't think that the photograph of the firefly gave such a reaction to many people.
I thought that only a Japanese showed interest in a firefly.

This photograph is a firefly of the kind of Hotaria parvula. Japanese name is "hime-botaru".
Although general Luciola cruciata(genji-botaru) and Luciola lateralis(heike-botaru) of Japan inhabit the waterside, Hotaria parvula lives into woods.
Hotaria parvula eats a univalve shell etc.
Compared with other fireflies, blink is shorter, and since it looks golden, it is called the gold firefly in the Niimi area.

+Tsuneaki Hiramatsu 私はいつもそれに魅了されてきた。我々はここでもホタル(シカゴ、イリノイ州)を持っていると私はこのように、それらを撮影しようとしてきました。私の写真は、あなたがそうであるようにように良い見たことはない。私は最初に背景を撮影するのあなたのアドバイスでこの春、再びそれを試してモチベーションを持っている。
+Ryan McGovern そちらでは蛍の季節は春なのですね。
Tsuneaki, I would like to include your firefly photos in an exhibition entitled Intergalactic this fall at the Dunedin Fine Art Center in Florida.
