An electric warrior on the prowl rivals
medieval machines of science and speed,
echoes of direct current
flickering through the night.

Great shot! I love these guys!
We saw a few on our dog walk last night. Good to see them making a return, but it still doesn’t match the numbers we recall from our childhood.
A car in the background is not something I would expect from a nature picture, but in this case it perfectly adds to the atmosphere and message. Very creative!
In my opinion it only enhances the contrast, highlighting (ha, yep) the warrior even more than its tail does. Well chosen variety of background I say.
Wonderful! Thank you for sharing!
Love LOVE these bold beacons!! Edison’s envy, keepers of the night.
No man made sparkle can match a firefly in flight! ROCK ON MY BEAUTIES!! Thanks Rick!
Thanks Diane. My evenings are set.
