Fiery Stars

Love lost in summer evenings, too bright
to ignore, a lawn transforms
into a field of delicate, fiery stars.

Fireflies transform a yard into a field of delicate, fiery stars

Firefly | Lampyridae | Photinus pyralis

    So amazing Rick. It must have been very difficult to capture them like this, moving in a low light condition.

    That is very beautiful. I thought at first glance that the fireflies were Fairy Slipper orchids.
