Thanks for your comment.

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.
The photograph of 2011/6/19 is taken in southern Okayama.
The photograph of 2011/7/8 is taken in the shrine precincts of a temple in Niimi-shi, Okayama.
Used equipment:NikonD300/AF-S NIKKOR 50mm F1.4G
Before dark, taking a piece of background.
Fireflies begin to fly, ISO800-1600, the exposure continuous shooting at 8 seconds.
